Allophycocyanin, beta subunit (IPR006245)

Short name: ApcB

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family of sequences represents the allophycocyanin beta subunit.The alpha and beta subunits of allophycocyanin form heterodimers, six of which associate into larger aggregates as part of the phycobilisome, a light-harvesting complex of phycobiliproteins and linker proteins [PMID: 10358042]. Other homologous phyobiliproteins include allophycocyanin alpha chain, and the phycocyanin and phycoerythrin alpha and beta chains.
