The photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter sulfidophilus is able to grow chemotrophically and phototrophically at a broad range of light intensities. In contrast to other facultative phototrophs, R. sulfidophilus synthesizes reaction center and light-harvesting (LH) complexes, B870 (LHI) and B800-850 (LHII) even under full aerobic conditions in the dark. The content of bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) varied from 3.8 micrograms Bchl per mg cell protein when grown at high light intensity (20,000 lux) to… CONTINUE READING
