Abstract

A Photosystem-II (PS-II)-enriched chloroplast submembrane fraction has been subjected to non-denaturing gel-electrophoresis. Two chlorophyll a (Chl a)-binding proteins associated with the core complex were isolated and spectrally characterized. The Chl protein with apparent apoprotein mass of 47 kDa (CP47) displayed a 695 nm fluorescence emission maximum (77 K) and light-induced absorption characteristics indicating the presence of the reaction center Chl, P-680, and its primary electron acceptor, pheophytin. A Chl protein of apparent apoprotein mass of 43 kDa (CP43) displayed a fluorescence emission maximum at 685 nm. We conclude that CP43 serves as an antenna Chl protein and the PS II reaction center is located in CP47.
