Australian Halobacteria and their retinal-protein ion pumps.


Halophiles collected in Western Australia have been found to be examples of extremely halophilic rod-shaped archaebacteria, members of the genus Halobacterium. Most of them contain retinal proteins, and these proteins differ from one another and also from both bacteriorhodopsin (bR) and halorhodopsin [and sensory rhodopsins (sR)] isolated from Halobacterium… (More)
