Flavins and flavoproteins are a widely investigated and highly versatile group of compounds. Participation of these compounds in photochemistry and photobiology processes are of particular importance in the fields of biology, chemistry and medicine. Written by leading experts in the field each section of the book includes a historical overview of the subject, state of the art developments and.

Bray (Editor) See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editions. Price New from Used from Format: Hardcover. The photochemical aspects of flavins have been reviewed with reference to the analysis of flavins and photoproducts in degraded solutions, spectral and photophysical properties, photodegradation reactions, photosensitization reactions, and photostability of riboflavin in pharmaceutical by: 5.   Abstract. Flavins are a family of yellow-colored compounds with the basic structure of 7,8-dimethylalkylisoalloxazine. Riboflavin, commonly known as vitamin B2, is an essential component of living organisms and is the precursor of all biologically important by:

Redox Properties of Flavoproteins Flavins are a ubiquitous class of redox-active coenzymes that are able to catalyze a number of different chemical reactions when bound to apoproteins. The result is a semiquinone with the properties of radicals (unpaired electrons). The semiquinone is very active and can easily donate the accepted electron, for example, to Fe 3+ ions or to oxidized cytochromes. Some flavoproteins also contain tightly bound metal ions that probably participate in catalysis.

Flavoproteinsare proteinsthat contain a nucleic acidderivative of riboflavin: the flavin adenine dinucleotide(FAD) or flavin mononucleotide(FMN). Flavoproteins are involved in a wide array of biological processes, including removal of radicalscontributing to oxidative stress, photosynthesis, and InterPro: IPR

Scherings.   The book begins with the properties and applications of flavins, including their photochemistry in aqueous and organic solutions. Subsequent sections discuss riboflavin as a visible light sensitizer in the photo degradation of drugs, antiviral and antibacterial effects, the role of flavins in light induced toxicity and blue light initiated DNA.
