A photosystem I (PSI)-fucoxanthin chlorophyll protein (FCP) complex with a chlorophyll a/P700 ratio of approximately 200:1 was isolated from the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum. Spectroscopic analysis proved that the more tightly bound FCP functions as a light-harvesting complex, actively transferring light energy from its accessory pigments chlorophyll c… CONTINUE READING
