    Does sunlight absorption (photons) have any affect on the iron spin state of heme within cytochromes or hemoglobin? Rather, does photon absorption aid or enhance the functions of metalloproteins in chemoheterotrophs?

      I haven't a clue, I know light can be used to break down bilirubin in newborns. Any molecule will absorb photons as far as I know, my chemistry isn't up to scratch for answering this lol.
