We report new experimental results on the ultrafast photo-isomerization of ASR - PSBR where, unlike other retinal proteins, point mutations lead to a 2-fold increase of the photo-isomerization speed for the all-trans isomer. Prominent low-frequency vibrational coherences are reported for both the excited and photo-product ground states.
