Researchers investigated the group of microorganisms classified as Asgard archaea, and found a protein in their membrane which acts as a miniature light-activated pump. The schizorhodopsin protein draws protons into the organisms’ body. This research could lead to new biomolecular tools to control the pH in cells or microorganisms, and possibly more.
