    Abstract

    The main goal of this thesis was to investigate the supramolecular architecture of a photosynthetic membrane from Rhodobacter sphaeroides purple bacteria cells. This is extremely timely, since we now know all of the structures of photosynthetic pigment-protein LH and RC complexes, ATP-synthase and bacterial cytochrome bc1 complexes. We employed tapping mode AFM imaging in liquid in order to obtain and analyze high-resolution topographs of photosynthetic membrane proteins in their native lipid bilayer environment.
