The D1 protein (PsbA) of photosystem II (PSII) from Thermosynechococcus elongatus is encoded by a psbA gene family that is typical of cyanobacteria. Although the transcription of these three genes has been studied previously (Kós, P. B., Deák, Z., Cheregi, O., and Vass, I. (2008) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1777, 74-83), the protein quantification had not been possible due to the high sequence identity between the three PsbA copies. The successful establishment of a method to quantify the PsbA… CONTINUE READING
