Comments [?]

Function Component of the cytochrome b6-f complex, which mediates electron transfer between photosystem II (PSII) and photosystem I (PSI), cyclic electron flow around PSI, and state transitions. PetL is important for photoautotrophic growth as well as for electron transfer efficiency and stability of the cytochrome b6-f complex.
Subunit The 4 large subunits of the cytochrome b6-f complex are cytochrome b6, subunit IV (17 kDa polypeptide, PetD), cytochrome f and the Rieske protein, while the 4 small subunits are PetG, PetL, PetM and PetN. The complex functions as a dimer.

Comments Subject to RNA editing in many seed plants; the start and stop codons are created by RNA editing in all conifers examined so far. Is essential in C. reinhardtii, but not required for photosynthesis in N. tabacum. Additionally, some cyanobacteria, for example Synechocystis, do not have this protein.
