BSA-conjugated synthetic peptide derived from a highly conserved sequence of Lhb4 proteins from angiosperms (monocots and dicots) and gymnosperms, including Arabidopsis thaliana (Lhcb4.1 At5g01530 and Lhcb4.2 At3g08940 and Lhcb4.3 At2G40100).
31.9 | 29 kDa for Arabidopsis thaliana
Catalpa bungei, Cucumis sativus, Populus, gymnosperms and microalgae Ostrecococcus tauri; the target sequence is only weakly conserved in Physcomitrella patens

5 µg of total protein from embebed seeds of Nicotiana tabacum growing during 4 d in dark (0) and then transfer to continue light growing for 6 h (6) extracted with LB2x buffer and denatured 90 ºC for 2-5 min, were separated on 12.5 % SDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to PVDF using tank transfer. Blots were blocked with TBS-T with 5% dry-milk for 3h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 10 000 overnight at 4 ºC with agitation in TBS-T with 5% dry-milk. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed 4 times for 15 min in TBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, AS09 602, from Agrisera) diluted to 1:30 000 in TBS-T with 5% dry-milk for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 5 min with chemiluminescent detection. Exposure time was 60 seconds.

An overview about the different Lhc-protein types in plants can be found in Klimmek et al. (2006) Abundantly and rarely expressed Lhc protein genes exhibit distinct regulation patterns in plants. Plant Physiol 140: 793-804.
Lhcb4 protein is processed into mature form (Jansson 1999).
Lhcb4 (CP29) is one of the 3 minor chlrorophyll a/b-binding proteins associated with Photosystem II in plants and algae. Lhcb4 has been suggested to act in the regulation of the chl a excited state concentration of PSII because of its ability of sensing lumenal pH resulting in reversible phosphorylation. In Arabidopsis thaliana 2 genes code for two isoforms Lhcb4.1 and Lhcb4.2. A third isoform (Lhcb4.3, At2g40100), probably only present in dicots, has found to be differently regulated and therefore has been denoted as Lhcb8.
