Abstract

Prochlorococcus marinus strain CCMP 1375 is the sole prokaryote to possess phycoerythrin in addition to (divinyl-)chlorophyll a/b binding antenna complexes. Here we demonstrate, employing a spectrofluorimetric assay, that phycoerythrin serves a light-harvesting antenna function (transfers energy to chlorophylls).
