Isolation and characterization of the B798 light-harvesting baseplate from the chlorosomes of Chloroflexus aurantiacus.

Abstract

The B798 light-harvesting baseplate of the chlorosome antenna complex of the thermophilic, filamentous anoxygenic phototrophic bacterium Chloroflexus aurantiacus has been isolated and characterized. Isolation was performed by using a hexanol-detergent treatment of freeze-thawed chlorosomes. The isolated baseplate consists of Bchl a, beta-carotene, and the 5… (More)
