Electron microscopy and single-particle analyses have been carried out on negatively stained photosystem II (PSII) complexes isolated from the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and the thermophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus. The analyses have yielded three-dimensional structures at 30-A resolution. Biochemical analysis of the C. reinhardtii particle suggested it to be very similar to the light-harvesting complex II (LHCII).PSII supercomplex of spinach, a conclusion borne out by… CONTINUE READING
