The effects of cholate on the structure of bacteriorhodopsin (bR) in the purple membrane and the effects of alkalion native and cholate-treated bR were studied using absorption spectra, fluorescence spectra and CD spectra. Treatment mass fraction of 10% cholate at room terrperature for 48 h had no obvious effect on the structure of bR, yet changed the composition of the purple merrbrane, making cholate-treated bR more stable in alkaline sol ution than native bR.
