CPK Color Scheme
C O N P
This tutorial will show you some of the key structures of the antenna complex and its relationship to the photosynthetic reaction center.
Focus your attention on the photosynthetic pigments in the antenna complex.
Focus on the proteins of the antenna complex (multi-colored) and the reaction center (pink).
When the protein stops moving, look for a missing protein in the outer circle that would have made the ring symmetrical all the way around. Hypothesize the function of this gap.
