Rhodopsin is an asymmetric protein with a molecular weight of about 38,000 Da. It has both a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic region with a folded length of about 70 Å. It spans the membrane of the retina via seven helical segments that cross back and forth and comprises about 60% of the membrane protein. The light-sensitive portion of the molecule resides in its hydrophobic region. When rhodopsin is exposed to light it changes its shape. The primary photochemical event is the very rapid isomerization of 11-cis retinal to a highly strained form, bathorhodopsin.

However, because of the vitamins’ vulnerability to oxidation, such solutions are very unstable. This is due to the wide dispersion of the vitamin molecules in water which has oxygen dissolved in it.
