Chlorophyll a/b binding (CAB) polypeptides of CP29, the internal chlorophyll a/b complex of PSII: characterization of the tomato gene encoding the 26 kDa (type I) polypeptide, and evidence for a second CP29 polypeptide.

Abstract

CP29, the core chlorophyll a/b (CAB) antenna complex of Photosystem II (PSII), has two nuclear-encoded polypeptides of approximately 26 and 28 kDa in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum). Cab9, the gene for the Type I (26 kDa) CP29 polypeptide was cloned by immunoscreening a tomato leaf cDNA library. Its identity was confirmed by sequencing tryptic peptides… (More)
