Chlorophylls (Chls)-a and -c(2) are identified and characterized in fucoxanthin chlorophyll-a/c(2) protein (FCP) complexes in the trimeric (FCPa(trim)) and oligomeric (FCPb(olig)) forms of FCP from the diatom Cyclotella meneghiniana using resonance Raman (RR) spectroscopy. Importantly, two different Chl-c(2)s are identified in both FCPa(trim) and FCPb(olig) from their signature ring-breathing modes at approximately 1360 cm(-1). In addition, the C13(1)-keto carbonyl peaks indicate the presence… CONTINUE READING
