Abstract—Incorporation of[2,3A5,6-2H5]phenylalanine, [3,5-2H2]tyrosine,and [2,4,5,6,7-2H5]tryptophan into thebacteriorhodopsin molecule followed by semipreparative isolation ofbacteriorhodopsin resulted in a yield of 8-10 mg per g bacterial biomass. Thismethod is based on the growth of the strain of halophilic bacteria Halobacteriumhalobium on a synthetic medium containing 2H-labeledaromatic ammo acids and fractionation of solubilized (in 0.5% sodium dodecylsulfate) protein by methanol, including purification of carotenoids. lip-ids, andhigh-molecular-weight and low-molecular-weight compounds, as well asgel-permeation chromatog-raphy on Sephadex G-200. Incorporation of 2H-labeledamino acids was analyzed by electron impact mass spectrometry afterhydrolysis of the protein in 4 N Ba(OH)2 and separation in the formof methyl esters of /V-DNS derivatives of amino aids by re versed-phasehigh-performance liquid chromatography.
