Origin of the 701-nm fluorescence emission of the Lhca2 subunit of higher plant photosystem I.

Abstract

Photosystem I of higher plants is characterized by red-shifted spectral forms deriving from chlorophyll chromophores. Each of the four Lhca1 to -4 subunits exhibits a specific fluorescence emission spectrum, peaking at 688, 701, 725, and 733 nm, respectively. Recent analysis revealed the role of chlorophyll-chlorophyll interactions of the red forms in Lhca3… (More)
