Reading 1:Structure of Bacteriorhodopsin




Query 5


What is the vectorial difference between the proton pump and chloride pump and how might they be related?



Query 6


Why is the resolution anisotropic for the bacteriorhodopsin structure described in the paper?

Reading 2: Rhodopsin and B2Ar 





Query 7


Why would molecular models of B2Ar based upon the rhodopsin structure be ineffective for drug design?



Query 8


Why did the authors use a fusion protein of b2ar instead of the holo protein?
