Abstract

Muon spin rotation and relaxation (µSR) measurements have been carried out on oxidized form of cytochrome c protein to understand the relation of electron transfer with water hydration at room temperature. Analysis of µSR data following the Risch-Kehr theory shows that intra- and inter-chain electron movement in the protein enhanced significantly. The three-dimensional diffusion of electron in wet sample (20% relative humidity) is increased around 75% with respect to that in dry sample (5% relative humidity).
