Abstract

Changes in membrane polypeptide com position during greening of etiolated maize were investigatedto confirm the existence of the developmental polypeptides of 12–15 kDa described recently in virescent soybean mutant [M. Droppa, M. L. Ghirardi, G. Horvath, and A. Melis, Biochim. Biophys. Acta 932, 138–145 (1988)]. These low molecular weight polypeptides were the most abundant proteins at the early stage of greening, but were largely absent from fully developed thylakoids. During greening the relative concentration of the 12–15 kDa polypeptides were inversely proportional to that of LHC II, suggesting a role of these polypeptides in the assembly of the LHC II and/or chloroplast development.
