The complex of cytochrome f and plastocyanin from Nostoc sp. PCC 7119 is highly dynamic.


PMID 22619165

Abstract

Cytochrome f (Cyt f) and plastocyanin (Pc) form a highly transient complex as part of the photosynthetic redox chain. The complex from Nostoc sp. PCC 7119 was studied by NMR relaxation spectroscopy with the aim of determining the orientation of Pc relative to Cyt f. Chemical-shift-perturbation analysis showed that the presence of spin labels on the surface of Cyt f does not significantly affect the binding of Pc. The paramagnetic relaxation enhancement results are not consistent with a single orientation of Pc, thus indicating that multiple orientations must occur and suggesting that an encounter state represents a large fraction of the complex.
