 Title    Characterization of Reaction Center-B875 Complex of Rhodocyclus gelatinosus: Q B Site Properties Derived from Reconstitution Experiments  
 Abstract    Purified reaction center-B875 pigment-protein complex isolated from Rc. gelatinosus (I. Agalidis, E. Rivas, and F. Reiss-Husson, Photosynth. Res. 23, 2 4 9 -2 5 5 (1990)) was further characterized. In the chromatophores, the quinone content was shown to be 6 menaquinones 8 and 16 ubiquinones 8 per reaction center, indicating that the pool contained both quinone types. Besides the primary (M K S) and secondary (U Q X) electron acceptors o f the reaction cen­ ter, the com plex contains residual quinones from the membrane pool (about 3 M K X and 5 U Q 8) probably associated with the phospholipids. Apparent particle weight o f the complex including bound detergent was 520 ± 46 kDa. The secondary quinone Q B was partially removed from the RC by treatment with 2 -3 % octaethyleneglycol dodecyl ether and 3 —4 m M orthophenanthroline. Reconstitution experi­ ments showed that U Q 6, U Q 9 and U Q ,0 could replace Q B but that M K S and M K , could not. It was concluded that Q B site has a clear specificity towards ubiquinone binding.
