The Lhc (light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b-binding protein) superfamily represents a class of antennae proteins that play indispensable roles in capture of solar energy as well as photoprotection under stress conditions. Despite their importance, little information has been available beyond model plants. In this study, we presents a first genome-wide analysis of Lhc superfamily genes in jatropha (Jatropha curcas L., Euphorbiaceae), an oil-bearing plant for biodiesel purpose. A total of 27 members were identified from the jatropha genome, which were shown to distribute over nine out of the 11 chromosomes. The superfamily number is comparable to 28 present in castor (Ricinus communis, Euphorbiaceae), but relatively less than 35 in cassava (Manihot esculenta, Euphorbiaceae) and 34 in arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) that experienced one or two recent whole-genome duplications (WGDs), respectively. In contrast to a high number of paralogs present in cassava and arabidopsis, few duplicates were found in jatropha as observed in castor, corresponding to no recent WGD occurred in these two species. Nevertheless, 26 orthologous groups representing four defined families were found in jatropha, and nearly one-to-one orthologous relationship was observed between jatropha and castor. By contrast, a novel group named SEP6 was shown to have been lost in arabidopsis. Global transcriptome profiling revealed a predominant expression pattern of most JcLhc superfamily genes in green tissues, reflecting their key roles in photosynthesis. Moreover, their expression profiles upon hormones, drought, and salt stresses were also investigated. These findings not only improve our knowledge on species-specific evolution of the Lhc supergene family, but also provide valuable information for further studies in jatropha.
