- ... Nine large-scale symmetry reaction center mutants were constructed in Rhodobacter capsulatus by replacing segments of the M subunit gene with the homologous region of the L subunit gene. Between them, the mutations resulted in symmetrization of essentially the entire region from the carboxy terminal portion of the C helix through most of the E helix. The amino acids in this region define about 80% ...
