Abstract [en]

Twenty-three chlorina (clo) mutants from the barley mutant collection of the Carlsberg Laboratory, Copenhagen, were tested for the presence of the four light-harvesting chlorophyll (Chl) a/b-binding proteins (LHC) of Photosystem I (Lhcal-4) and the PS II antenna proteins Lhcb1-3 (LHC II), Lhcb4-6 (CP29, CP26, CP24) and PsbS (CP22) using monospecific and monoclonal antibodies. Mutants allelic to barley mutant clo-f2, impaired in Chi b synthesis, provided evidence that Lhca4, Lhcb1 and Lhcb6 are unstable in the absence of Chi b, and the accumulation of Lhcb2, Lhcb3 and Lhcb4 is also impaired. Mutants at the locus chlorina-a (clo-a(117), clo-a(126) and clo-a(134)) lack or have only trace amounts of Lhca1, Lhca4, Lhcb1 and Lhcb3, whereas a mutant at the locus chlorina-b (clo-b(125)) had reduced amounts of all Lhca proteins. These two mutations could have an effect in protein import or assembly. Evidence is presented that Lhcb5 is the innermost LHC protein of PS II, and that Lhca1 and Lhca4, which have been supposed to be intimately associated in the LHCI-730 complex, can accumulate independently of each other. 77 K fluorescence emission spectra taken from leaves of clo-f2(101), clo-a(126) and clo-b(125) indicate that chlorophyll(s) emitting at 742 nm are coupled to the presence of Lhca4 that is bound to the reaction centre, and those emitting around 730 nm are located on Lhca1.
