GFP is widely used as a
biological marker because of its superb fluorescence
properties. We have synthesized GFP chromophore and
its derivatives, and their photochemistry
and photophysics were investigated using various
steady-state and time-resolved techniques.
We first compared their optical properties between
solution and solid state. We found some O-alkyl
GFP chromophore derivatives exhibit large
fluorescent enhancement in the solid state.
Cis/trans isomerization is thought to be responsible
for blinking behavior in fluorescent protein;
however, the mechanism of the thermal reverse
isomerization is more problematic. Using
Hammett plot studies, we conceived,
for the first time, a novel nucleophilic
addition/elimination mechanism.
Finally, a hydroxyl substituent at the meta position
shows enhanced charge transfer and greater acidity
in the excited state. As a result, we have
demonstrated that the fast quenching of the excited
state by internal conversion to the ground state is
much slower in meta- than in para-HOBDI derivatives.
This allows studies of this ultrafast intermolecular
ESPT that competes with isomerization.
