The orientation and conformation of retinal within bacteriorhodopsin of the purple membrane of Halobacterium halobium was established by solid-state deuterium NMR spectroscopy, through the determination of individual chemical bond vectors. The chromophore ([2,4,4,16,16,17,17,17,18,18-2H11]retinal) was specifically deuterium-labeled on the cyclohexene ring and incorporated into the protein. A uniaxially oriented sample of purple membrane patches was prepared and measured at a series of inclina...Expand abstract
