AbstractPhotoreceptors are a class of light-sensing proteins with critical biological functions. UVR8 is the only identified UV photoreceptor in plants and its dimer dissociation upon UV sensing activates UV-protective processes. However, the dissociation mechanism is still poorly understood. Here, by integrating extensive mutations, ultrafast spectroscopy, and computational calculations, we find that the funneled excitation energy in the interfacial tryptophan (Trp) pyramid center drives a directional Trp-Trp charge separation in 80 ps and produces a critical transient Trp anion, enabling its ultrafast charge neutralization with a nearby positive arginine residue in 17 ps to destroy a key salt bridge. A domino effect is then triggered to unzip the strong interfacial interactions, which is facilitated through flooding the interface by channel and interfacial water molecules. These detailed dynamics reveal a unique molecular mechanism of UV-induced dimer monomerization.

<p>An innovative theoretical approach for deeper understanding of the ultrafast spectroscopy experiments through solution of the Boltzmann transport equation coupled with various nonlinear scattering mechanisms, overcoming the limitations offered by DFT, RT-TDDFT and molecular based methods, is reported. A clear advantage of the real-time approach is that it does not make a priori assumptions about specific scattering, relaxation mechanisms and has capabilities to capture the full real-time carrier’s dynamics, including the superposition of all electron–electron, electron-lattice and electron–phonon scatterings etc. No such method with advances in theoretical treatments to explain ultrafast spectroscopy has been reported previously as per the author’s knowledge.</p>
