The molecular structure of the photosynthetic reaction centre from Rhodopseudomonas viridis has been elucidated using X-ray crystallographic analysis. The central part of the complex consists of two subunits, L and M, each of which forms five membrane-spanning helices. We present the first description of the high-resolution structure of an integral membrane protein.
