We have used antibodies generated against synthetic peptides to determine the topology of the 43 kD chlorophyll a binding protein (CP 43) of Photosystem II. Based on the pattern of proteolytic fragments detected (on western blots) by peptide specific antibodies, a six transmembrane span topological model, with the amino and carboxyl termini located on the stromal membrane surface, is predicted. This structure is similar to that predicted for CP 47, a PS II chlorophyll a binding protein (Bricker… CONTINUE READING
