Their topics include templating photoreactions in solutions, supramolecular photochirogenesis, the photochromism of multicomponent diarylethene crystals, controlling photoreactions through non-covalent interactions within zeolite nanocages, and protein-controlled ultrafast photoisomerization in rhodopsin and bacteriorhodopsin.
In another innovative approach, artificially prepared vesicles known as liposomes were assembled on a quartz crystal microbalance via layer-by-layer growth using the membrane protein bacteriorhodopsin as a binding reagent.
While much structural knowledge has been gained about membrane proteins including GPCRs through innovative techniques such as atomic force microscopy, where the cytoplasmic conformational space of bacteriorhodopsin has been sampled (111), computational approaches are increasingly successful and considered full partners to experimental approaches (112).
One bit of data could be stored by a single molecule of GFP rather than by macroscopic dots of bacteriorhodopsin, another light-responsive protein with data storage potential (SN: 3/8/97, p.
