On a possible biological spectroscopy

A new type of physical transition, denotedS→S *, has been detected in irradiated organic molecules (λ=546 nm) through their interaction with specific biological macromolecules. In a specific enzyme-substrate interaction, a clear enhancement of the reaction rate is observed, when the substrate is irradiated with sharply well defined times. These “efficient irradiation times” are always of the 5k sec type (k=1, 2, 3, …). They have been consistently revealed in a great number of specific biological interactions. The present note demonstrates an important property, i.e. that forevery irradiation time aS→S * transition is induced in organic molecules. It is shown that for any irradiation times different from the 5k sec type (k=1, 2, 3, …) states of theS * type may occur, but the biological macromolecules may “detect” only theS * states induced by irradiations of the 5k sec type.
