Treatment of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii thylakoids with cross-linking reagents including glutaraldehyde causes polymerization of all thylakoid polypeptides, but not of the reaction center II polypeptide D1 unless the thylakoids are presolubilized by octyl beta-D-glucoside (Adir, N., and Ohad, I. (1986) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 850, 264-274). The results presented here show that this is a general property of D1 as it can be demonstrated in thylakoids of cyanophytes, Dasicladaceae, green algae, and… CONTINUE READING
