Color Plate 1. Model of the thylakoid membrane and of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase (RuBisCo) from organisms of the chlorophyll a/b lineage of plants, illustrating the composition and the intracellular genetic origin of intrinsic and peripheral polypeptides of the membrane. Plastid-encoded components are presented in green, those of nuclear origin in yellow. PC = plastocyanin, Fd = ferredoxin, PQ/PQH2 = plastoquinon/plastoquinol, FNR = ferredoxin oxidoreductase, Ftr = ferredoxin-thioredoxin oxidoreductase, TR = thioredoxines. Modified from Herrmann (1996). (See Chapter 1, p. 3.)
