Abstract [en]

The present review aims at surveying recent theoretical development and applications of electronic energy transport between chromophoric molecules (i.e. donors and acceptors) in various protein and lipid systems. Reversible, partly reversible, and irreversible energy transport within pairs of interacting chromophoric molecules are considered. Also energy migration/transfer within ensembles of many donor and acceptor molecules is discussed. An extended Förster theory of interacting pairs is summarised, which brings the analyses of data to the same level of molecular description as in ESR and NMR spectroscopy. Recent applications of energy transfer/migration on protein systems concern their structure, folding, and their formation of non-covalent protein polymers. The latter systems are of particular interest in e.g. the study of amyloid formation and the molecular functioning of muscles. The energy transfer/migration processes have also been utilised to study the spatial distribution of lipid molecules, which is of interest in the study of biological membranes and their functioning, e.g. the presumed formation of so-called rafts.
