ResumenThe light-harvesting complex II of the purple bacteria has two strong near infrared electronic absorption bands, around 800 (B800) and 850 (B850) nm, arising from the Qy transitions of bacteriochlorophyll a. It was previously reported that under some specific acid/chaotropic conditions the B850 bacteriochlorophyll of the light-harvesting complex II of Ectothiorhodospira sp. are strongly reorganized. Part of these pigments absorbs at 843 nm while another set absorbs around 858 nm. The current work should investigate whether a mix of two different complexes could generate the 843- and 858-nm bands. Acid/chaotropic conditions inducing the reorganization of B850 were reproduced on a sample bound to an ionic-exchange column. The chromatographic pattern was found strongly homogeneous. The findings indicate that the heterogeneity of the reorganized B850 results from two forms of differently structured bacteriochlorophylls bound to the same polypeptide backbone.
