Pharaonis halorhodopsin is a light-driven transport system for chloride, similarly to the previously described halorhodopsin, but we find that it transports nitrate as effectively as chloride. We studied the photoreactions of the purified, detergent-solubilized pharaonis pigment with a gated multichannel analyzer. At a physiological salt concentration (4 M… CONTINUE READING
