In cyanobacteria, light energy is mainly harvested for photosynthesis by the phycobilisome (PBS): a large pigment-protein complex. This complex is composed of heterodimeric phycobiliproteins that are assembled with the aid of linker polypeptides in order to optimize light-energy absorbance and transfer to photosystem II. The core membrane linker subunit (L(CM)) is a fascinating multifunctional polypeptide that participates in the PBS structure, function and anchoring to the photosynthetic… CONTINUE READING
