 Title    The Conformation of Bilin Chromophores in Biliproteins: Ramachandran-Type Calculations  
 Abstract    Ramachandran-type calculations are perform ed for conformations o f bilin chromophores pres­ ent in the biliproteins phycocyanin, phycoerythrin and phytochrome. The atom ic coordinates are taken from x-ray data o f crystalline model compounds, namely biliverdin for pyrrole rings B, C, D and substituted succinimides for the hydrogenated ring A including a thioether containing ^-sub­ stituent. Maxima and m inim a for steric hindrance are calculated for rotation o f the thioether side chain, the rotation of pyrrole rings at single bonds (syn-anti-forms) and at double bonds (Z-E-iso-mers) of the methine bridges. Whereas quasi-planar structures are possible for all syn, Z-forms, only twisted structures are possible if anti, E-forms are considered. The relevance for the bilin con­ formations of native biliproteins and o f the Pr ^ Pfr phototransform ation is discussed.
