During photosynthesis, the plant photosystem II core complex receives excitation energy from the peripheral light-harvesting complex II (LHCII). The pathways along which excitation energy is transferred between them, and their assembly mechanisms, remain to be deciphered through high-resolution structural studies. Here we report the structure of a 1.1-megadalton spinach photosystem II-LHCII supercomplex solved at 3.2 Å resolution through single-particle cryo-electron microscopy. The structure… Expand
Structure, assembly and energy transfer of plant photosystem II supercomplex.
TLDR

Structure and assembly mechanism of plant C2S2M2-type PSII-LHCII supercomplex
TLDR
Cryo–electron microscopy structures of a supercomplex consisting of a dimeric core and two strongly bound and two moderately bound LHCIIs (C2S2M2), is reported, which is the dominant form in plants acclimated to limited light. Expand
Structural determination of the large photosystem II–light-harvesting complex II supercomplex of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii using nonionic amphipol
TLDR
It is found that the interprotein distances within the light-harvesting complex array in the green algal photosystem are larger than those previously observed in higher plants, indicating that the potential route of energy transfer in the PSII–LHCII supercomplex in green algae may be altered.

Structure of photosystem I-LHCI-LHCII from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii in State 2
TLDR
The present results reveal the organization and assembly of PSI core subunits, LHCI and LHCII, pigment arrangement, and possible pathways of energy transfer from peripheral antennae to thePSI core. Expand
Structural insight into light harvesting for photosystem II in green algae
TLDR
High-resolution cryo-EM structures of Chlamydomonas light-harvesting complex II (LHCII)–photosystem II (PSII) supercomplexes show loosely and moderately associated LHCIIs forming multiple pathways for energy transfer to PSII reaction centres. Expand

Structural and spectroscopic findings provide important insights into the excitation-energy-transfer and subunit assembly mechanisms in the PSI–IsiA supercomplex, indicating that IsiA functions as an energy donor in the supercomplex. Expand
Regulation of light harvesting in multimeric and monomeric photosystem II supercomplexes
TLDR
Characterization using fluorescence analysis revealed that multimeric forms have a higher light-harvesting capability, but a lower thermal dissipation capability than the monomeric form, suggesting such a configurational conversion of PSII–LHCII supercomplexes possibly serves as a structural basis for the plants’ acclimation to environmental light.

Light-harvesting complex II (LHCII) and its supramolecular organization in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
TLDR
The data indicate that there are at least six LHCII trimers per dimeric core in the thylakoid membranes, meaning that the antenna size of PSII of C. reinhardtii is larger than that of plants. Expand

The first X-ray structure of LHC-II in icosahedral proteoliposome assembly at atomic detail is reported, finding the xanthophyll-cycle carotenoid at the monomer–monomer interface may be involved in the non-radiative dissipation of excessive energy, one of the photoprotective strategies that have evolved in plants.

A model of the plant LHCII-PSII supercomplex is constructed using a 17 A resolution 3D electron density map of the spinach supercomplex determined by cryo-EM and single particle analysis to tentatively identify the relative positioning of the chlorophylls within the supercomplex and consider energy transfer pathways between the different subunits.

Two special clusters of pigment molecules, namely a615–a611–a612–Lut and Vio(Zea)–a603–a609, have been identified and might function as potential energy-quenching centers and as the exit or entrance in energy-transfer pathways. Expand
