The BChla-containing B880-complex (core-complex) of Rhodopseudomonas marina (Rhodospirillaceae) was isolated with a new purification method. The isolation of the B880-complex was performed by solubilisation of the photosynthetic membranes with the detergent LDAO and subsequent fractionated ammonium-sulfate precipitation with about 50% recovery. The B880-complex retained its original spectral properties as revealed with absorption, fluorescence and circular dichroism spectroscopy. Furthermore… CONTINUE READING
