Namephotosynthetic reaction center, alphaproteobacterial type
DescriptionThis alphaproteobacterial-type photosynthetic reaction center is found in Rhodobacterales, Rhodospirillales, Rhizobiales. A similar complex is found in the Chloroflexi, which do not belong to the alphaproteobacteria. This complex is associated with nonoxygenic photosynthesis. It differs from photosystems I and II of the cyanobacteria and plants. The core complex of the reaction center is a heterotrimer of L, M, and H subunits.
