Abstract

High resolution solid-state 13C NMR spectra have been obtained for bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) a in a light-harvesting (LH) 1 complex utilizing a reconstitution method. The LH 1 complexes were reconstituted with 13C-enriched BChl a and the apo-LH1 polypeptide from Rhodospirillum rubrum. Measurement of the 2-dimentional 13C-13C dipole correlation NMR spectra enabled the selective assignment of the 13C resonance from the BChl a molecules in the reconstituted LH1.
