Green sulfur bacteria possess two light-harvesting antenna systems, the chlorosome and the Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) protein. In addition to self-aggregated bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) c, chlorosomes of Chlorobium tepidum contain a small amount of BChl a (ratio 100:1). The chlorosomal BChl a is associated with CsmA, a 6.2 kDa protein that accounts for more than 50% of the protein content of chlorosomes. This CsmA-BChl a complex is located in the chlorosome baseplate with the hydrophilic C… CONTINUE READING
