Abstract

Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of sodium dodecyl-benzene sulphonate (SDBS) solubilised chloroplast lamellae results initially in 4 major chlorophyll-containing bands. After standing only 3 major bands are obtained. The unstable band is a dimer of pigment-protein complex II which dissociates to the monomer. Occurrence of the dimer is favoured by use of SDBS rather than sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS), and SDBS: chlorophyll ratios of less than 15:1.
