  • Light-induced H+ release and reuptake as well as surface potential changes inherent in the bacterio-rhodopsin reaction cycle were measured between 10 degrees C and 50 degrees C. Signals of optical pH indicators covalently bound to Lys-129 at the extracellular surface of bacteriorhodopsin were compared with absorbance changes of probes residing in the aqueous bulk phase. Only surface-bound indicators monitor the kinetics of H+ ejection from bacteriorhodopsin and allow the correlation of the… CONTINUE READING
