Comments Bacteriorhodopsin is an integral membrane protein usually found in two-dimensional crystalline patches known as "purple membrane", which can occupy up to nearly 50% of the surface area of the archaeal cell. Data in table for purple membrane with half the area occupied by ion-pumping rhodopsin
