Abstract or Summary
  • We constructed an experimental apparatus that used lasers to provide the probe beams for measuring the transient absorption kinetics of bacterioplankton that contain proteorhodopsin, a microbial protein that binds retinal and is analogous to animal rhodopsin. With this approach we were able to observe photocycles characteristic of functioning retinylidene ion pumps. Using light from lasers instead of broadband sources as transmittance probe beams can be advantageous when examining optically dense, highly scattering samples such as concentrated microbial cultures. Such a laser-based approach may prove useful in shipboard studies for identifying proteorhodopsin in whole cell suspensions concentrated from seawater.
