Abstract

Current knowledge of the structure and components of the photosystem II complex (PSII) is quite comprehensive, yet still little is known regarding how the complex assembles or disassembles for repair, and even less about how its function is fine-tuned for optimal performance under fast and ever-changing light and temperature conditions. Especially, we are interested in the roles played by the so called low molecular mass PSII proteins in the function and structural organization of the PSII complex. We wish to perform analysis of single particle cryo-EM data of PSII complexes from the model plant species Arabidopsis thaliana using the software recently made available under the PReSTO project.
