chlorosome

Elongated membranous vesicles attached to the plasma membrane of green photosynthetic bacteria; contain the light-harvesting antenna complexes of bacteria in the sub-Order Chlorobiineae. Pigments include bacteriochlorophylls and carotenoids.

Chlorosome

A Chlorosome is a photosynthetic antenna complex found in green sulfur bacteria (GSB) and some green filamentous anoxygenic phototrophs (FAP) (Chloroflexaceae, Oscillochloridaceae). They differ from other antenna complexes by their large size and lack of protein matrix supporting the photosynthetic pigments. Green sulfur bacteria are a group of or...
