Absorption spectra of the purified cytochrome b(6)f complex from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii were monitored as a function of the redox potential. Four spectral and redox components were identified: in addition to heme f and the two b hemes, the fourth component must be the new heme c(i) (also denoted x) recently discovered in the crystallographic structures. This heme is covalently attached to the protein, but has no amino acid axial ligand. It is located in the plastoquinone-reducing site Q(i… CONTINUE READING
