The influence of bacteriochlorophyll biosynthesis on formation of pigment-binding proteins and assembly of pigment protein complexes in Rhodopseudomonas capsulata

Abstract

The synthesis of bacteriochlorophyll (Bchl) was inhibited in wild type strain of Rhodopseudomonas capsulata by levulinic acid (LA), δ-aminolevulinic acid of α,α′-dipyridyl. The transcription of genes for pigment-binding proteins, the synthesis and incorporation of these proteins into the membrane and the assembly of photosynthetic complexes were studied… (More)
