A guide to the Lhc genes and their relatives in Arabidopsis
Trends in Plant Science: 1999 4:236-240
The Lhc super-gene family encodes the light-harvesting chlorophyll al b-binding (LHC) proteins that constitute the antenna system of the photosynthetic, apparatus, and also includes some relatives whose functions are more or less unknown. The Lhc super-gene family of Arabidopsis contains >30 members and the databases contain >1000 EST clones originating from these genes. This article presents an overview of these genes and provides some tools for researchers who want to use them in their studies.
