Comments Plastocyanin (Pc) is a small single-copper protein (molecular mass, 10.5 kDa) which functions as a mobile electron carrier in the thylakoid lumen of oxygen-evolving photosynthetic organisms. It is interesting to note that Pc is acidic in higher plants and green algae, with an isoelectric point of 3.5-4, but in cyanobacteria it can be either almost neutral, as is the case in Synechocystis, with an isoelectric point close to 6, or basic, as in Anabaena, with an isoelectric point of 8-9
