Bacteriorhodopsin is a purple protein that is embedded in the membrane of a photosynthesising organism, where it captures the energy from the suns rays. Instead of removing the sensitive protein from the membrane, as Richard Henderson had previously tried to do, he and his colleagues took the complete purple membrane and put it under the electron microscope. In this way, the protein retained its structure because it remained membrane-bound. To prevent the samples surface from drying out in the vacuum, they covered it with a glucose solution.. The harsh electron beam was a major problem, but the researchers made use of the way in which bacteriorhodopsin molecules are packed in the organisms membrane. Instead of blasting it with a full dose of electrons, they used a weaker beam. The images contrast was poor, and they could not see the individual molecules, but they were able to make use of the fact that the proteins were regularly packed and oriented in the same direction. When all the ...

Biological molecules and assemblies, such as the photochemical reaction center, are capable of capturing light with good quantum efficiency and transforming it into chemical energy. If properly exploited, such assemblies have potential applications as biomolecule information processing units.. Bacteriorhodopsin, from the purple membrane bacterium Halobacterium halobium, is one such system that has been studied extensively and has been commercialized into optical holographic memories (Birge 1995). In the bacterium, the protein bacteriorhodopsin self-assembles into ordered lipid patches. The protein absorbs light and undergoes a cycle involving a complex series of intermediates, resulting in a proton being pumped across the membrane. It was information developed from understanding the basic science behind the way that bacteriorhodopsin works that led to the use of bacteriorhodopsin as a biomolecule information processing unit. To be used for information storage, the protein is placed under ...
General Information: This organism was isolated from the Dead Sea and will provide information on the proteins necessary for adaptation to a high salt environment. Halophilic archaeon. Halobacterial species are obligately halophilic microorganisms that have adapted to optimal growth under conditions of extremely high salinity 10 times that of sea water. They contain a correspondingly high concentration of salts internally and exhibit a variety of unusual and unique molecular characteristics. Since their discovery, extreme halophiles have been studied extensively by chemists, biochemists, microbiologists, and molecular biologists to define both molecular diversity and universal features of life. A notable list of early research milestones on halophiles includes the discovery of a cell envelope composed of an S-layer glycoprotein, archaeol ether lipids and purple membrane, and metabolic and biosynthetic processes operating at saturating salinities. These early discoveries established the value of ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of Asp85 replacement by Thr on the conformation, surface electric properties and stability of bacteriorhodopsin. AU - Taneva, Stefka G.. AU - Gõi, Felix M.. AU - Tuparev, Nikolai P.. AU - Petkanchin, Ivana. AU - Dér, A.. AU - Muga, Arturo. PY - 2002/9/25. Y1 - 2002/9/25. N2 - The role of Asp85 in maintaining bacteriorhodopsin structure has been analyzed by infrared spectroscopy, electric light scattering and differential scanning calorimetry. In comparison with the wild type bacteriorhodopsin, the mutant protein D85T shows a different conformation, electric dipole moments and decreased thermal stability. The conformational rearrangements affect both the transmembrane helices and the extramembranous protein segments. Both electric dipoles - the permanent dipole moment and the electric polarizability - have drastically lower values for the membranes containing D85T variant of bacteriorhodopsin. Therefore, this single amino acid mutation not only changes bacteriorhodopsin ...
Halobacterium salinarum ATCC ® 33171D™ Designation: Genomic DNA from Halobacterium salinarum strain NRC 34002 TypeStrain=True Application:
0070]Bacteriorhodopsin (purple membrane) has been incorporated in liposomes using sonication. The lipid mixture used was 4:1 DOPE: EggPC. DOPE has been shown to increase the incorporation of bacteriorhodopsin (bR). 10 mM pH buffer was used so that we could see the change in pH due to bacteriorhodopsin. After gelation, a few drops of buffer were added to the sample if the pH was not stable, for example due to improper contact with the pH electrode. The pH levels of gels containing the bR-incorporated lipsomes before and after light exposure were measured and compared with the pH levels of blank-liposomes in gel before and after light exposure. Light with a yellow light filter was shined for 30 sec and a break for 60 sec was given. This was due to the fact that the blank-liposome gel in buffer was showing a slight decrease in pH, which was suspected to be due to a heat effect. The pH levels of the blank returned to baseline after exposure to light, whereas the pH levels of the bR-incorporated ...

In recent years several laboratories have developed effective plating techniques, identifying genetic markers that do not target cell wall synthesis, fusing archaeal promoters with recombinant genes, and isolating native vectors and promiscuous nonnative vectors. This chapter focuses on tractable systems that are currently available for the Archaea. Due to fundamental differences between gene transfer systems for each archaeal branch, the chapter is divided into three inclusive sections covering the halophilic and methanogenic Euryarchaeota and the hyperthermophilic Crenarchaeota. Despite varying degrees of difficulty growing Archaea, all three systems are routinely used by laboratories conducting research on archaeal genetics and can be mastered by anyone with a fundamental knowledge of microbial genetic techniques. Under low oxygen tension, Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 induces purple membrane patches in the cell membrane and buoyant gas vesicles intracellularly, which increases the availability of light

Bacteriorhodopsins are a large family of seven-helical transmembrane proteins that function as light-driven proton pumps. Here, we present the crystal structure of a new member of the family, Haloarcula marismortui bacteriorhodopsin I (HmBRI) D94N mutant, at the resolution of 2.5 Å. While the HmBRI retinal-binding pocket and proton donor site are similar to those of other archaeal proton pumps, its proton release region is extended and contains additional water molecules. The proteins fold is reinforced by three novel inter-helical hydrogen bonds, two of which result from double substitutions relative to Halobacterium salinarum bacteriorhodopsin and other similar proteins. Despite the expression in Escherichia coli and consequent absence of native lipids, the protein assembles as a trimer in crystals. The unique extended loop between the helices D and E of HmBRI makes contacts with the adjacent protomer and appears to stabilize the interface. Many lipidic hydrophobic tail groups are discernible in the
The primary processes of the photochemical cycle of light-adapted bacteriorhodopsin (BR) were studied by various experimental techniques with a time resolution of 5 × 10-13 s. The following results were obtained. (a) After optical excitation the first excited singlet state S1 of bacteriorhodopsin is observed via its fluorescence and absorption properties. The population of the excited singlet state decays with a lifetime τ1 of ~0.7 ps (430 ± 50 fs) (52). (b) With the same time constant the first ground-state intermediate J builds up. Its absorption spectrum is red-shifted relative to the spectrum of BR by ~30 nm. (c) The second photoproduct K, which appears with a time constant of τ2 = 5 ps shows a red-shift of 20 nm, relative to the peak of BR. Its absorption remains constant for the observation time of 300 ps. (d) Upon suspending bacteriorhodopsin in D2O and deuterating the retinal Schiff base at its nitrogen (lysine 216), the same photoproducts J and K are observed. The relaxation time ...

The story behind optogenetics is a story of convergence of two seemingly unrelated fields: microbial microbiology and neuroscience. In 1971, Walther Stoeckenius and Dieter Oesterhelt discovered the transmembrane protein bacteriorhodopsin (BR) that is capable of moving ions in the presence of light. BR is highly expressed in haloarcheal membranes while a similar transmembrane protein proteorhodopsin (PR) is expressed in eubacteria. In 1977, Matsuno-Yagi and Mukohata described the ion pump channel halorhodopsin which displaces extracellular chloride ions in to the cell. As these discoveries were happening in the background, a growing desire to effectively control the neurons was ever -prevalent. During this period, neuroscientist adopted the idea that cognitive processes were distributed in various localizations of the cortex. This fact evident when lesions in specific areas would lead to loss of a specific process. Even fMRIs and PET solidified this point, but, even with these high-tech ...

Halobacteria can be found in highly saline lakes such as the Great Salt Lake, the Dead Sea, and Lake Magadi. Halobacterium can be identified in bodies of water by the light-detecting pigment bacteriorhodopsin, which not only provides the archaeon with chemical energy, but gives it a reddish hue as well. An optimal temperature for growth has been observed at 37oC. On an interesting note, however, Halobacteria are a candidate for a life form present on Mars. One of the problems associated with the survival on Mars is the destructive ultraviolet light. Halobacteria have an advantage here. These microorganisms develop a thin crust of salt that can moderate some of the ultraviolet light. Sodium chloride is the most common salt and chloride salts are opaque to short-wave ultraviolet. Their photosynthetic pigment, bacteriorhodopsin, is actually opaque to the longer wavelength ultraviolet (its red color). The obstacle Halobacteria would need to overcome is being able to grow at a low temperature during ...
Pumps and selective uptake devices need fuel - biological energy - and halobacteria, unlike Dunaliella, are not able to photosynthesise energy-yielding organic matter from carbon dioxide. They need pre-formed organic matter as food, and supplies of this are likely to be intermittent. However, their membranes do possess a unique way of obtaining energy from light. In their membranes are patches of purple pigments called rhodopsins. These are light-sensitive. Actually, they are chemically related to pigments in the retinas of our eyes, the light receptors which enable us to see. Not that halobacteria can see; in their case the pigments capture light energy and use it to generate a substance called ATP, which is the universal source of biological energy in cells…In the process of generating ATP, ions are swapped between the interior and exterior of the cell such that most of the sodium ends up outside and potassium is retained: light helps the ion pump work. This is a special kind of ...

Every plant can adapt to a range of environments. Gardeners have learned through experience where the great variety of landscape plants can be grown. Over the years many schemes have been proposed to help gardeners locate those environments when they introduce new species, forms, and cultivars. The pooling of many of these schemes culminated in the development of the widely used Plant Hardiness Zone Map, under the supervision of Henry T. Skinner, the second director of the U.S. National Arboretum. In cooperation with the American Horticultural Society, he worked with horticulral scientists throughout the United States to incorporate pertinent horticultural and meteorlogical information into the map ...

The proteasome is a protein-destroying apparatus involved in many essential cellular functions, such as regulation of cell cycle, cell differentiation, signal transduction pathways, antigen processing for appropriate immune responses, stress signaling, inflammatory responses, and apoptosis. It is capable of degrading a variety of cellular proteins in a rapid and timely fashion and most substrate proteins are modified by ubiquitin before their degradation by the proteasome. The proteasome is a large protein complex consisting of a proteolytic core called the 20S particle and ancillary factors that regulate its activity in various ways. The most common form is the 26S proteasome containing one 20S core particle and two 19S regulatory particles that enable the proteasome to degrade ubiquitinated proteins by an ATP-dependent mechanism. Another form is the immunoproteasome containing two 11S regulatory particles, PA28 alpha and PA28 beta, which are induced by interferon gamma under the conditions of ...
SzR was first identified in Asgardarchaeota and is phylogenetically positioned between typical microbial rhodopsins and HeRs (Fig. 1). In this study, we showed that SzR is a new type of light-driven inward H+ pump (Fig. 2). XeR was previously reported as an inward H+ pump in the typical microbial rhodopsin family (9-11). Although the sequential homology between the two subfamilies is low (SzR1 and PoXeR show 15.7% identity and 42.6% similarity), the trimeric structure and the photocycle with a large M accumulation not accompanied by N and O intermediates of SzR are similar to those reported for XeR (9-11), despite a large phylogenetic distance between them. This suggests that XeR and SzR underwent convergent evolution at the molecular level to achieve the same biological function. The differences and similarities between SzR and XeR are listed in Fig. 6C. Asgardarchaeota contain not only SzRs but also typical microbial rhodopsins with a DTK motif in helix C and HeRs (8). Although the function of ...
