Abstract

In a textbook dedicated to photoresponsiveness in biological systems, a detailed discussion of the role and importance of light in living organisms is surely not necessary. Nor does it appear useful to present another review on photoinduced conformational changes in polypeptides when an up-to-date one is in press (1). Nevertheless on one side, some general considerations can help to focalize the problem and, on the other, some considerations on the techniques and their limitations seem to be necessary in such a multidisciplinary field. Two short introductory paragraphs have thus been devoted to the problems.
