Abstract [en]

Photosystem I (PSI) preparations from barley (Hordeum vulgare) and spinach (Spinacia oleracea) were subjected to chemical crosslinking using the cleavable homobifunctional cross-linkers dithiobis(succinimidylpropionate) and 3,3'-dithiobis(sulfosuccinimidylpropionate). The overall pattern of cross-linked products was analyzed by the simple but powerful technique of diagonal electrophoresis, in which the disulfide bond in the cross-linker was cleaved between the first and second dimensions of the gel, and immunoblotting. A large number of cross-linked products were identified. Together with preexisting data on the structure of PSI, it was deduced that the subunits PSI-D, PSI-H, PSI-I, and PSI-L occupy one side of the complex, whereas PSI-E, PSI-F, and PSI-J occupy the other. PSI-K and PSI-G appear to be adjacent to Lhca3 and Lhca2, respectively, and not close to the other small subunits. Experiments with isolated light-harvesting complex ] preparations indicate that the subunits are organized as dimers, which seem to associate to the PSI-A/PSI-B proteins independent of each other. We suggest which PSI subunit corresponds to each membrane-spanning helix in the cyanobacterial PSI structure, and present a model for higher-plant PSI.
