Paper Abstract

FTIR-difference spectra can be obtained from both photoreceptor membrane, involved in visual detection, and purple membrane, involved in light-driven proton pumping. Peaks often can be assigned to single molecular groups, thereby providing information about the molecular mechanisms of these processes. Fourier self-deconvolution can be used to separate overlapping bands.
