Spectral tuning of Archaerhodopsin 3 in Escherichia coli

Abstract:

Microbial rhodopsins are proteins that act as light driven proton pumps located in the plasma membrane of eukarya, bacteria and archaea. These proteins facilitate the movement of protons by light-induced isomerisation of a central retinal chromophore found in the transmembrane core of the opsin protein. Here we detail an extensive study of amino acid substitutions in the retinal binding pocket of archaerhodopsin 3 (AR3) and their effect on the absorbance spectrum of the protein for use in ...
