Proteorhodopsins (PRs), bacterial photoactive proton pumps, were originally detected in the uncultured marine gamma-proteobacterial SAR86 group. PRs are now known to occur in both the gamma and alpha marine proteobacterial lineages. Recent environmental shotgun sequence analysis in the Sargasso Sea has added yet more diversity, and a potentially broader taxonomic distribution, to the PR family. Much remains to be learned, however, about within-taxon PR variability and the broader organismal… CONTINUE READING
