1 µg of thylakoid membranes isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana wild-type and respective mutants were solubilized with 3X LB (6 M urea, 12% SDS, 30% glycerol, 100 mM DTT, 150 mM Tris pH7.0, 0.8% Comassie G-250). 1 µg of total chlorophyll was loaded and separated on 16% SDS-PAGE, and then blotted for 2 h onto nitrocellulose membrane. Blots were blocked with milk powder for 2 h and then incubated in the primary antibody solution (AS13 2705, 1: 5 000) for 2.5 h, which was then decanted and the blot was washed 3 times for 5 min in TBST. Membrane was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated) diluted to 1:10 000 in for 1 h, followed by washing steps as above. All the steps fallowing transfer were performed in room temperature (RT) with agitation. Membrane was developed for 5 min with ECL according to the manufacturer’s instructions and recorded using FujiFilm CCD camera with 30 s increment time for around 5 min.

The major light-harvesting antenna complex II (LHCII) in photosynthetic eukaryotes is located in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast. It is a heterotrimeric complex formed by up to 3 different individual subtypes of chlorophyll a/b-binding proteins: Lhcb1, Lhcb2, and Lhcb3. Lhcb2 is often coded by several nuclear genes and is found together with Lhcb1 within the mobile LHCII trimers involved in state1-state2 transition.
