 Title    Chromophore Content and Molar Absorptivity of Phytochrome in the Pr Form  
 Abstract    Quantitative absorption spectra in the visible and UV region were recorded for denaturated phytochrome (P r) and phytochromobilin peptides in comparison with native Pr. The method was tested with C-phycocyanin from Spirulina platensis. Based on known molar absorptivities for denaturated phycocyanin and suitable model compounds, and on the ratio ^niüve/^delrS = 2.9, ^native was determined to be 1 0 2 0 0 0 m _1 cm-1 for one phycocyanobilin chromophore in native phycocyanin. Likewise, N a t iv e was calculated to be 19000 M -1 cm-1. The corresponding ratios for Pr Were ^native/^denatured = 3*4 and A native/-^degraded = 3.7, t h l S yielded ^native = 109000 tO 118000 and eSUfcve = 36000 M _1 cm-1 for phytochromobilin in native P r. This value corresponds to one phytochromobilin per small phytochrome (60000 D) if data from the literature are corrected for the content o f colorless proteins. The latter has been asessed from (i) the purity index (A2g0/A665) and (ii) the contribution o f the phytochromobilin chromophore at 280 nm as derived from model compounds.
