Fourier transform infrared study of photoreceptor membrane. I. Group assignments based on rhodopsin delipidation and reconstitution.


Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy has been used to study the structure of bovine photoreceptor membrane. Rhodopsin appears to contain an extensive alpha-helical structure which is arranged predominantly perpendicular to the membrane plane. Spectra of delipidated rhodopsin and rhodopsin membranes reconstituted from dioleyl-phosphatidylcholine were… (More)
