[1] Incorporation of spheroidene and spheroidenone into light-harvesting complexes from purple sulfur bacteria / A. Ashikhmin, Z. Makhneva, M. Bolshakov, A. Moskalenko // Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology. — 2017. — Vol. 170. — P. 99–107. Spheroidene and spheroidenone from the non-sulfur bacterium Rhodobacter (Rba.) sphaeroides were incorporated into diphenylamine (DPA) LH1-RC and LH2 complexes from sulfur bacteria Allochromatium (Alc.) minutissimum and Ectothiorhodospira (Ect.) haloalkaliphila in which carotenoid (Car) biosynthesis was inhibited by ∼95%. A series of biochemical characteristics of the modified LH2 complexes was studied (electrophoretic mobility, absorption and CD spectra, Car composition, Car-to-BChl energy transfer and thermal stability). It was found that the electrophoretic mobility of the complexes with incorporated Cars did not change compared to that of the control and DPA-complexes, indicating the absence of any significant change in the structure of LH complexes upon DPA-treatment and subsequent incorporation of Cars. The analysis of fluorescence excitation spectra of the spheroidene-incorporated LH2 complex (LH2:sph) and the spheroidenone-incorporated LH2 complex (LH2:sph-ne) showed that spheroidene and spheroidenone exhibited relatively low efficiencies of energy transfer to BChl, when incorporated into the LH2 DPA-complexes from Alc. minutissimum and Ect. haloalkaliphila, although, they showed high efficiencies, being in their natural state in the LH2 complexes from Rba. sphaeroides. A significant increase in thermostability observed for the LH2:sph and LH2:sph-ne complexes with respect to the LH2 DPA-complexes indicated that the two incorporated Cars stabilized the structure of the LH2 complexes.
