Examples

  • Two of the postulated structures contain the chromophoric system C = C – C = C – C = O which should therefore give rise to a characteristic absorption spectrum.

  • The light intensity encountered in single-molecule spectroscopy is many orders of magnitude higher than natural one, and the photobleaching under high-light condition occurs, on different time-scales, with the chromophoric systems.

  • P. cruentum constructed was characterized to contain lower level of PE content in light of the complete deficiency of γ subunits, the B-PE-associated chromophoric linker polypeptides, revealed by LiDS-PAGE (lithium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis) experiment

  • Here, despite the high involvement of PE in the light-induced energetic decoupling of PBsomes, we further found specifically that the different roles of B-PE that carries chromophoric γ-subunit and b-PE that lacks γ-subunit in the photoprotective mechanism of red algae.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • A specialized type of linker polypeptides, the chromophoric γ subunits, are responsible for the association of B-PE molecules in the rod elements, whereas they are absent in b-PEs The evolution of PBPs, from APC to PC and to PE, is accompanied by the diversity and increasing number of chromophores

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • In addition to the roles in PBPs assembly and energy migration, the chromophoric γ subunit is preferentially sensitive to the intense light, and probably functions in the photoprotection of PBsome.
