Organization of the Photosynthetic Membrane of Rhodopseudomonas Viridis Using Biochemical, Immunological and Electron Microscopical Methods
Rhodopseudomonas viridis is a purple photosynthetic bacterium which has a natural econiche in the depths of stagnant water. It possesses an excellent adaptation to the energy-poor, long wavelength, light which reaches it by a repetitive, hexagonal arrangement of the light collecting antennae components and by the possession of a bacteriochlorophyll pigment (BCh1 b) which has a wavelength optimum at 1015-1020 nm.
