Abstract

Electron spin relaxation measurements on low-spin Fe3+ in several proteins show that they occupy a space of fractal dimensionality d=1.650.04, in conformity with the dimensionality d=53 of a self-avoiding random walk. Analysis of myoglobin x-ray data independently confirms this fractal dimension.
