The effects of sorbitol on energy transfer of phycobilisomes (PBSs) in vivo were investigated in a chlN deletion mutant of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. When the mutant was grown in the dark, it contained intact and functional PBSs but essentially no chlorophyll or photosystems. Therefore, the structural and functional changes of the mutant PBSs in vivo can… CONTINUE READING
