Structural order in chromatophore membranes of Rhodospirillum rubrum

Abstract

STRUCTURAL studies of the purple membranes of Halobacterium halobium1–4 have raised the question of whether the in-plane structural order is an exceptional feature of very limited biomembranes or whether it is somewhat more common. We have found that the structural order exists in the chromatophores of Rhodospirillum rubrum and Rhodopseudomonas spheroides… (More)
