We have characterized a xanthophyll binding site, called V1, in the major light harvesting complex of photosystem II, distinct from the three tightly binding sites previously described as L1, L2, and N1. Xanthophyll binding to the V1 site can be preserved upon solubilization of the chloroplast membranes with the mild detergent dodecyl-alpha-d-maltoside, while an IEF purification step completely removes the ligand. Surprisingly, spectroscopic analysis showed that when bound in this site… CONTINUE READING
