Atomic-force microscopy: Rhodopsin dimers in native disc membranes
In vertebrate retinal photoreceptors, the rod outer-segment disc membranes contain densely packed rhodopsin molecules for optimal light absorption and subsequent amplification by the visual
Organization of the G Protein-coupled Receptors Rhodopsin and Opsin in Native Membranes*
TLDR
This is the first semi-empirical model of a higher order structure of a GPCR in native membranes, and it has profound implications for the understanding of how this receptor interacts with partner proteins.
Molecular architecture of photosynthetic membranes in Rhodobacter sphaeroides: the role of PufX
TLDR
The effects of the PufX polypeptide profoundly affects membrane morphology, leading to highly elongated cells containing extended tubular membranes, and the implications of this data for the export of quinol from the RC, for eventual reduction of the cytochrome bc1 complex.
Functional Characterization of Rhodopsin Monomers and Dimers in Detergents*
TLDR
It is shown that in micelles containing n-dodecyl-β-maltoside at concentrations greater than 3 mm, Rho is present as a single monomer per detergent micelle and the functional characterization of Rho monomers and dimers in detergent is described.
