A myoglobin-cadmium telluride quantum dot conjugate was constructed using an artificial heme modified with a thiol moiety as a linker. Irradiation of the myoglobin-cadmium telluride conjugate generated the photoreduced ferrous myoglobin via an electron transfer from the photoexcited quantum dot, leading to the formation of CO-bound myoglobin under a CO atmosphere.
