    Western blot using anti-Lhcb2 antibodies

    Species and variants: Pea – Pisum sativum L. Bean – Phaseolus coccineus L. 3h – 3 hours of cold exposure 9h – 9 hours of cold exposure 12h – 12 hours of cold exposure 2d – 2 days of cold exposure

    Samples of isolated thylakoids containing 3 µg of chlorophyll were denatured with Laemmli buffer (1 vol : 1 vol) at 75 °C for 5 min. Denatured samples containing 1 µg of chlorophyll were loaded in the gel wells, separated on 12% SDS-PAGE gels and blotted for 45 min at 100 V to PVDF membrane using wet transfer. Blot was blocked with 5% milk in TBS-T for 60 min at room temperature (RT) with agitation. The blot was incubated with the primary antibody at a dilution of 1:500 in 1% Amersham™ ECL Prime Blocking Agent in TBS-T overnight at 4ºC with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was washed 3 times for 5 min in TBS-T at RT with agitation. The blot was incubated using a secondary antibody (goat anti-rabbit IgG HRP conjugated, from Agrisera, AS09 602) diluted to 1: 25 000 in 1% milk in TBS-T for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed 5 times for 5 min in TBS-T, 1 time for 5 min in TBS, 1 time for 5 min in 0.1 M Tris (pH 8.5), and developed for 4 min in substrates (0.188 mM coumaric acid, 1.25 mM luminol, 0.01% H2O2). Exposure time was 5 seconds in ChemiDoc scanner (BioRad).

    Thylakoid protein phosphorylation and state transitions are disturbed after high light treatment in pgr6 background. a Total protein extracts of 4-week-old wild type (WT), pgr6-1, pgr6?2, sps2 and stn7/stn8 analysed by immunoblotting with anti-phosphothreonine antibody; the principal thylakoid phospho proteins are indicated on the right according to their size. Core photosystem II proteins D1 (PsbA) and D2 (PsbD) are indicated as a single band due to their poor resolution. Actin was used as a loading control. b Lhcb1 and Lhcb2 phosphorylation levels were visualised after separation on Phostag™-pendant acrylamide gels. The upper band corresponds to the phosphorylated form (p-), stn7/stn8 double mutant is a non-phosphorylated control. c Average transient of the variable room temperature chlorophyll fluorescence measured during the transition from red (660nm) supplemented with far-red light (720nm) state 1 to pure red light state 2 (n?=?4 independent pots containing 2–3 plants). The fluorescence curves from pgr6 and sps2 are shifted on the x-axis to allow visualising the FMST1 and FMST2 values. The x-axis time scale refers to the wild-type curve. d Calculated quenching related to state transition (qT?=?(FMST1?–?FMST2)/FM), expressed as the percentage of FM that is dissipated by the state 1 to state 2 transition, of wild type (WT), pgr6?1 and sps2 under moderate light (120?mol?m?2?s?1) (ML) and after 3?h of high light (500?mol?m?2?s?1) (HL). Whiskers and box plot shows the minimum, first quartile, median, average, third quartile and maximum of each dataset (n?=?4 biologically independent samples); p-values are calculated via a two-tailed Student’s t test. e STN7 phosphorylation level visualised after separation on Phostag™-pendant acrylamide gels.

    Double mutant maintains thylakoid protein phosphorylation and state transitions after high light. (A) Total protein extracts of wild type (WT), abc1k1.1, -2, abc1k3.1, -2, and abc1k1/abc1k3.1, -2 light-exposed leaves were separated by SDS PAGE, transferred on nitrocellulose membrane and decorated with anti-phosphothreonine antibody. The main thylakoid phospho-proteins are indicated on the right according to their size. Core photosystem II proteins D1 (PsbA) and D2 (PsbD) are indicated together due their poor resolution. (B) The accumulation of the principal photosynthetic complexes was assessed using antibodies against specific subunits of each complex: anti-Lhcb2 for the major LHCII, anti-D1 (PsbA) for PSII, anti-PetC for cytochrome b6f, anti-PsaD and anti-PsaC for PSI, and anti-AtpC for ATP synthase. Actin signal is shown as a loading control. (C) Fluorescence quenching related to the state transitions (qT) of wild type (WT), abc1k1.1, -2, abc1k3.1, -2, and abc1k1/abc1k3.1, -2 under moderate light (120 ?mol of photons m–2 s–1) (ML) and after 3 h of high light (500 ?mol of photons m–2 s–1) (HL). qT was calculated from the maximal chlorophyll fluorescence measured after 10 min exposure to red light (660 nm) supplemented with far-red illumination (720 nm) “State 1” (FMST1) or to pure red light “State 2” (FMST2). Quenching related to state transition was calculated as qT = (FMST1 – FMST2)/FM. Each value represents the average of a pot containing 2–3 plants. Superscript letters are used to indicate statistically different groups (p < 0.05) by paired Student’s t-test.

  • Background
  • Background:

    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.
    A molecular characterisation of the LHCII proteins can be found in Caffarri et al. (2004) A Look within LHCII:  Differential Analysis of the Lhcb1−3 Complexes Building the Major Trimeric Antenna Complex of Higher-Plant Photosynthesis. Biochemistry 43 (29): 9467–9476.

    I use this antibody regularly to compare Lhcb2 abundances in Arabidopsis during different stress treatments. It gives very nice signals in the immunodetection assay, even when only low amounts of total protein were loaded. I can definitely recommend.

    The lhcb2 antibody purchased from Agrisera is a high quality product. The antibody has high specificity - no background or unspecific bands. The resulting signal is really strong at short exposure times even when low concentration of the sample is used.

    For this antibody I loaded an amount of sample with a chlorophyll concentration of only 0,5 l/ml, and in western blotting analyses the ECL signal was very intense. Moreover, I did not get aspecific bands for any of these antibodies.
