A new technique is described for specific recognition of protein analytes by observing protein-induced changes in the drying/crystallization patterns (DCP) of an array of microdroplets containing solutions of different reporter substances. Recognition is based on a difference in interaction of the protein analyte crystalline elements (planes, edges,(More)
Bacteriorhodopsin (b) thin films have been fabricated with varying amounts of the detergent Triton X-100 to measure the effect of this additive on the holographic performance of these thin films. Holographic spectroscopy is used to measure the effect of these detergents on the overall diffraction efficiency as well as on the phase and amplitude components(More)
Photochromic and electrochromic spectral properties of 4-keto-bacteriorhodopsin (4-keto-BR) embedded in a polymer matrix were studied. The light-induced spectral changes were found to be similar to those for 4-keto-BR in suspension, but the duration of the photocycle is substantially longer (up to ten of h). Application of a constant electric field induces(More)
Naturally occurring retinal-protein complexes (RPCs) have recently received much attention with regard to their potential use as light-sensitive elements for optical recording. The best-known RPC is bacteriorhodopsin (BR), a photosensitive protein from the membrane of extreme halophilic bacteria, which has been studied in great detail. The remarkably robust(More)
Long-living spectral products observed earlier in purple membranes (PM) are discovered in the cells of Halobacterium halobium (Hh) under the action of yellow light. Blue spectral region of the light has been found to be optimal for PM arising in the cells cultivated under light. On the basis of the changes discovered in the optical spectra of Hh we may(More)
The effect of preliminary illumination of purple membranes by yellow light on the difference spectra of short-lived intermediates has been studied. It has been found that changes of the optical density of two of these intermediates, which have the maxima of the difference spectrum at 412 nm and 650 nm, coincides well with the kinetics off the known(More)
In this article, we describe a new method of extracting information from signals, called functional dissipation, that proves to be very effective for enhancing classification of high resolution, texture-rich data. Our algorithm bypasses to some extent the need to have very specialized feature extraction techniques, and can potentially be used as an(More)
Effect of reversible photodependent spectral transition 560 in equilibrium 570 of the basic absorption band in purpur membranes (PM) in water on the accumulation of short-living forms 412 and 650 of bacteriorhodopsin (BR) photochemical cycle was studied. It has been shown that photochemical transformations in BR proceed as a minimum by two independent(More)
A suspension of freeze-thawed mitochondria mixed with purple membranes from Halobacteria was illuminated with visible light. It was found that the light exposure prevented inhibition of succinate oxidation. The illumination also led to a decrease in inhibition of the rate of ferricyanide reduction by rat liver mitochondria in the presence of succinate. Both(More)
