Bacteriorhodopsin: the effect of bilayer thickness on 2D-array formation, and the structural re-alignment of retinal through the photocycle.

Abstract:

From our earlier extensive protein-lipid reconstitution studies, the conditions under which bacteriorhodopsin forms organised 2D arrays in large unilamellar vesicles have been established using freeze-fracture electron microscopy. In a background bilayer matrix of phosphatidylcholine (diC(14:0)), the protein can form arrays only when the anionic purple membrane lipid, phosphatidylglycerol phosphate (or the sulphate derivative) is present. Here we have now extended this work to investigate the...
