Abstract

Many processes in living organisms are associated with a space propagation of energy and electrons along protein molecules. For example, the energy released under hydrolysis of ATP molecules in some cases is transferred along alpha-helical protein molecules as the vibrational oscillation (amide I) of atoms C=0 of peptide groups (PG’s) contained in these molecules. Protein molecules also transport electrons from donors to acceptors very effectively.
