Characterization of a signaling complex composed of sensory rhodopsin I and its cognate transducer protein from the eubacterium Salinibacter ruber.

Abstract

Sensory rhodopsin I (SRI) exists in the cell membranes of microorganisms such as the archaeon Halobacterium salinarum and is a photosensor responsible for positive and negative phototaxis. SRI forms a signaling complex with its cognate transducer protein, HtrI, in the membrane. That complex transmits light signals to the flagellar motor through changes in… (More)
