The hypothesis on the additional function of the ATP/ADP antiporter (ANT) as uncoupling protein has been tested in proteoliposomes and planar bilayer phospholipid membranes (BLM). It is found that dissipation of the light-induced delta pH in the dark is very much faster in ANT-bacteriorhodopsin proteoliposomes than in proteoliposomes containing… CONTINUE READING
