PsbP is a membrane extrinsic subunit of Photosystem II (PS II), which is involved in retaining Ca2+ and Cl−, two inorganic cofactors for the water-splitting reaction. In this study, we re-investigated the role of N-terminal region of PsbP on the basis of its three-dimensional structure. In previous paper [Ifuku and Sato (2002) Plant Cell Physiol 43: 1244–1249], a truncated PsbP lacking 19 N-terminal residues (Δ19) was found to bind to NaCl-washed PS II lacking PsbP and PsbQ without activation… CONTINUE READING
