The chloroplast NAD(P)H dehydrogenase complex interacts with photosystem I in Arabidopsis.

ABSTRACT: The chloroplast NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (NDH) complex is involved in photosystem I (PSI) cyclic and chlororespiratory electron transport in higher plants. Although biochemical and genetic evidence for its subunit composition has accumulated, it is not enough to explain the complexes putative activity of NAD(P)H-dependent plastoquinone reduction. We analyzed the NDH complex by using blue native PAGE and found that it interacts with PSI to form a novel supercomplex. Mutants lacking NdhL and NdhM accumulated a pigment-protein complex with a slightly lower molecular mass than that of the NDH-PSI supercomplex; this may be an intermediate supercomplex including PSI. This intermediate is unstable in mutants lacking NdhB, NdhD, or NdhF, implying that it includes some NDH subunits. Analysis of thylakoid membrane complexes using sucrose density gradient centrifugation supported the presence of the NDH-PSI supercomplex in vivo. Although the NDH complex exists as a monomer in etioplasts, it interacts with PSI to form a supercomplex within 48 h during chloroplast development.
