Neutron diffraction studies of retinal rod outer segment membranes

Neutron diffraction measurements on isolated retinal rod outer segments show that most of the visual pigment protein, rhodopsin, is embedded in the hydrophobic core of the disk membrane. A very slight outward shift of protein at the cytoplasmic side of the membrane is associated with pigment bleaching.
