Light-induced phosphorylation of endogenous thylakoid membrane protein can be inhibited markedly by a novel inhibitor CaMBP-10 which is discovered and isolated from plant. The inhibitory effect of BP-10 can be eliminated by addition of CaM. At the same time, the phosphorylation can also be inhibited by EGTA or CaM antagonists, such as TFP (trifluoperazine) and W-7 (N-(6-aminohexyl)-5-chloro-l-naphthalene sulfonamide). This result implies that (i) Ca2+ and CaM most likely participate in and… Expand
Calmodulin binds to maize lipid transfer protein and modulates its lipids binding ability
It is reported that the binding of maize non‐specific lipid transfer protein (Zm‐LTP) to calmodulin (CaM) is in a calcium‐independent manner and the results suggest that the interaction with CaM could be a common feature of plant LTPs. Expand

Regulation and Role of Calcium Fluxes in the Chloroplast


Phosphorylation of thylakoid proteins by a purified kinase.
In a heterogeneous reconstitution system comprised of purified kinase and washed thylakoids (having their intrinsic kinase inactivated or removed), endogenous light-harvesting pigment protein of photosystem II could serve as a substrate and was not under redox control. Expand
Phosphorylation of chloroplast membrane polypeptides
ILLUMINATION of chloroplast thylakoids leads to the formation of the so-called high energy state of the membrane1–3. The establishment of this state is accompanied by several structural changesExpand
Redox titration of multiple protein phosphorylations in pea chloroplast thylakoids
The ‘reverse’ redox dependence of phosphorylation of the 63 kDa and 46 kDa bands suggests that more than one redox-controlled protein kinase (or phosphatase) functions in the thylakoid membrane. Expand
Effects of synthetic peptides on thylakoid phosphoprotein phosphatase reactions
A synthetic peptide analogue of the phosphorylation site of LHC II, when phosphorylated by thylakoid membranes, served as a substrate for the thylakoid phosphoprotein phosphatase. The phosphopeptideExpand
Purification and properties of rabbit skeletal muscle adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate-dependent protein kinases.
Abstract A modified procedure for purification of the adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate-dependent (cyclic AMP-dependent) protein kinase from rabbit skeletal muscle is described. This procedure results inExpand
Thylakoid protein phosphorylation, state 1-state 2 transitions, and photosystem stoichiometry adjustment: redox control at multiple levels of gene expression

Distribution of excitation energy between photosystem I and photosystem II in red algae. II. Kinetics of the transition between state 1 and state 2.
A model which assumes the rearrangement of charges in the plane of the thylakoid membrane as a primary inducing event in the state 1-state 2 transition may lead to a redistribution of excitation energy among Photosystems I and II by a slow dark process, which may include a conformation change of some protein(s).

Distinct mechanical relaxation components in pairs of erythrocyte ghosts undergoing fusion.
It is found that the diameter increase in open lumen- and flat diaphragm-producing fusion processes both had a rapid but short early phase which was exponential or nearly so and a slow but long late phase (5-120 s after fusion) which was essentially linear. Expand
