5 µg of total protein from Arabidopsis thaliana (1), Hordeum vulgare (2), Zea mays (3) extracted with Agrisera PEB buffer (AS08 300) were separated on 4-12 % NuPAGE Bis-Tris gel (Invitrogen) and blotted 1h to PVDF. Blots were blocked with blocking reagent for 1.5 h at room temperature (RT) with agitation. Blot was incubated in the primary antibody at a dilution of 1: 10 000 for 1h at RT with agitation. The antibody solution was decanted and the blot was rinsed briefly twice, then washed once for 15 min and 3 times for 5 min in TBS-T at RT with agitation. Blot was incubated in secondary antibody (anti-rabbit IgG horse radish peroxidase conjugated, Agrisera, AS09 602) diluted to 1:25 000 in for 1h at RT with agitation. The blot was washed as above and developed for 5 min with chemiluminescent detection reagent, according to the manufacturers instructions. Exposure time was 44 seconds.

PSII reaction centre components are generating the redox potential required to drive highly oxidizing water splitting reaction. Four Mn atoms are present on a lumenal surface and form the catalyctic site of the water-splitting reaction which is in close association with the 33 kDa (PsbO), 23 kDa (PsbP) and 17 kDa (PsbQ) extrinistic subunits of oxygen evolving complex OEC. A 33-kDa extrinsic protein is also termed the Mn-stabilizing protein (MSP), however recent evidences shown that it is C-terminal domain of PsbA (D1) protein which is involved in in the assembly and stabilization of the OEC.
