Descriptor in English: Photoreceptors, Microbial
Descriptor in Spanish: Fotorreceptores Microbianos
Descriptor in Portuguese: Fotorreceptores Microbianos
Descriptor in French: Photorécepteurs microbiens
Entry term(s): Microbial Photoreceptor
Microbial Photoreceptors
Photoreceptor, Microbial
Tree number(s): D12.776.752
Scope note: Light absorbing proteins and protein prosthetic groups found in certain microorganisms. Some microbial photoreceptors initiate specific chemical reactions which signal a change in the environment, while others generate energy by pumping specific ions across a cellular membrane.
