UniProt functional annotation for Q01667

UniProt code: Q01667.

Organism: Arabidopsis thaliana (Mouse-ear cress).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Viridiplantae; Streptophyta; Embryophyta; Tracheophyta; Spermatophyta; Magnoliophyta; eudicotyledons; Gunneridae; Pentapetalae; rosids; malvids; Brassicales; Brassicaceae; Camelineae; Arabidopsis.
Function: The light-harvesting complex (LHC) functions as a light receptor, it captures and delivers excitation energy to photosystems with which it is closely associated.
Cofactor: Binds at least 14 chlorophylls (8 Chl-a and 6 Chl-b) and carotenoids such as lutein and neoxanthin. {ECO:0000250}.
Subunit: The LHC complex consists of chlorophyll a-b binding proteins. Heterodimer with LHCA4.
Subcellular location: Plastid, chloroplast thylakoid membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Domain: The N-terminus of the protein extends into the stroma where it is involved with adhesion of granal membranes and post- translational modifications; both are believed to mediate the distribution of excitation energy between photosystems I and II.
Ptm: Photoregulated by reversible phosphorylation of its threonine residues. {ECO:0000250}.
Similarity: Belongs to the light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b- binding (LHC) protein family. {ECO:0000305}.
