The BLUF protein BlrB from the non-sulphur anoxyphototrophic purple bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides is characterized by absorption and emission spectroscopy. BlrB expressed from E. coli binding FAD, FMN, and riboflavin (called BrlBI) and recombinant BlrB containing only FAD (called BlrBII) are investigated. The dark-adapted proteins exist in two different receptor conformations (receptor ...
