Antenna Complexes from Green Photosynthetic Bacteria
Green photosynthetic bacteria contain unique peripheral antenna complexes known as chiorosomes. Chiorosome complexes are optimized for light collection at low levels. The chlorosome is composed ofExpand

Light intensity effects on pigment composition and organisation in the green sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidum
We have investigated the changes in the pigment composition and organisation of the light-harvesting apparatus of the green sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidum growing under different lightExpand

Composition and optical properties of reaction centre core complexes from the green sulfur bacteria Prosthecochloris aestuarii and Chlorobium tepidum
Photosynthetically active reaction centre core (RCC) complexes were isolated from two species of green sulfur bacteria, Prosthecochloris (Ptc.) aestuarii strain 2K and Chlorobium (Chl.) tepidum,Expand

Exciton simulations of optical spectra of the FMO complex from the green sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidum at 6 K.
Optical spectra (absorption, circular dichroism, linear dichroism, and triplet-minus-singlet), measured at 6 K, are presented for the Fenna−Matthews−Olson (FMO) complex from the green sulfurExpand

A model of the protein–pigment baseplate complex in chlorosomes of photosynthetic green bacteria
In contrast to photosynthetic reaction centers, which share the same structural architecture, more variety is found in the light-harvesting antenna systems of phototrophic organisms. The largestExpand

Low-temperature spectroscopy of isolated FMO-protein and a membrane-free reaction center complex from the green sulfur bacteriumChlorobium tepidum
We have isolated the water-soluble BChla-protein (FMO-protein) from the greer sulfur bacteriumChlorobium tepidum by a new procedure involving a salt-wash of isolated membranes at alkaline pH. TheExpand

Chlorosome lipids from Chlorobium tepidum: characterization and quantification of polar lipids and wax esters
We have extracted polar lipids and waxes from isolated chlorosomes from the green sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidum and determined the fatty acid composition of each lipid class. Polar lipidsExpand

The three‐dimensional structure of CsmA: A small antenna protein from the green sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidum
The structure of the chlorosome baseplate protein CsmA from Chlorobium tepidum in a 1:1 chloroform:methanol solution was determined using liquid‐state NMR spectroscopy. The data reveal that theExpand

Effect of Alkaline Treatment on Bacteriochlorophyll a, Quinones and Energy Transfer in Chlorosomes from Chlorobium tepidum and Chlorobium phaeobacteroides
Abstract— Chlorosomes isolated from two types of green sulfur bacteria, Chlorobium tepidum which contains bacteriochlorophyll c (BChl c) and the BChl e‐containing Chlorobium phaeobacteroides, wereExpand

High degree of organization of bacteriochlorophyll c in chlorosome-like aggregates spontaneously assembled in aqueous solution
Pigment-lipid aggregates were formed in aqueous solution by diluting a chloroform/methanoll extract of chlorosomes of the green photosynthetic bacterium,3Chlorobium limicola. The aggregates showedExpand
