Spectroscopic Characterization of Purified Chlorophyll a/b Protiens CP29, CP26, CP24 from Maize PSII Antenna Complex
The antenna of Photosystem II (PSII) has been the subject of extensive investigation and recently has been proved to be a complex system made up of different populations of chlorophyll-protein complexes 1, 2, 3. Besides the main chlorophyll a/b antenna component (LHCII) other CPs have been isolated such as CP29, CP26 and CP24. Scarce information exists on the structural, spectroscopic and functional properties of these antenna components also due to the difficulty of having them in a pure and native form.
