Caption: Bacteriorhodopsin molecule. Computer model showing the structure of bacteriorhodopsin made-up of three identical protein chains. A few atoms of the blue chain have been removed in order to show the retinal molecule buried inside (white). This protein is found in primitive micro-organisms known as Archaea. It acts as a proton pump, harnessing the energy of light to drive cellular ATP synthesis.
