In cyanobacterial phycobilisomes, light energy absorbed by phycocyanin (lambda max 620 nm) is transferred to allophycocyanin (AP; lambda max 650 nm) and allophycocyanin B (AP-B; lambda max 670 nm) and emitted primarily at 680 nm. This emission maximum coincides with that of pure AP-B. Previous studies have shown that Synechococcus 6301 AP and AP-B are both (alpha beta)3 trimers with a number of similar properties. Here, we show that the beta subunits of AP and AP-B have identical molecular… CONTINUE READING
