Sensory rhodopsin-1 (SR-1) is a 7-transmembrane protein that acts as a phototaxis receptor in archaebacteria. Due to its covalently bound colored ligand, SR-1 is ideal for use as a control membrane protein, for example for crystallization assays and biochemical/biophysical experiments. We provide SR-1 of high purity, purified from E.coli as a his-tagged protein.
