The major light-harvesting complex of photosystem II in higher plants is known as LHCII. It is composed of a number of chlorophyll-binding proteins sharing epitopes with each other. The number of apoproteins resolved by fully denaturing sodium dodecylsulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis varies in different species. In order to know if this heterogeneity is caused by the expression of a number of homologous genes or if it is the product of post-translational modifications, we have resolved… CONTINUE READING
