We report a protein conformational change following carbon monoxide photodetachment from fully reduced bovine cytochrome c oxidase that is hypothesized to be associated with changes in ligand mobility through a dioxygen access channel in the protein. Although not resolved by earlier photoacoustic or optical studies on this adduct, utilization of slightly lower temperatures revealed a process with...
