In contrast, a large variety in light-harvesting complexes exist between the photosynthetic species.
The structures of these supercomplexes are large, involving multiple light-harvesting complexes.
For instance, in low-light circumstances it responds by increasing the level of these light-harvesting (LH) complexes that allow light absorption.
Since then, several other high-resolution structures have been done by electron crystallography, including the light-harvesting complex, and the bacterial flagellum.
Phycoerythrocyanin is similar to phycocyanin, an important component of the light-harvesting complex (phycobilisome) of cyanobacteria and red algae.
They use special proteins, called light-harvesting complexes, to absorb the photons with very high effectiveness.
Chlorophylls and carotenoids are important in light-harvesting complexes present in plants.
Liu et al. (2004) Crystal structure of spinach major light-harvesting complex at 2.72A resolution.
Such a protein is also called a light-harvesting complex.
Because they have been so difficult to study, the chlorosomes in green sulfur bacteria are the last class of light-harvesting complexes to be characterized structurally by scientists.
