The D1 protein (PsbA) of photosystem II (PSII) from Thermosynechococcus elongatus is encoded by a psbA gene family that is typical of cyanobacteria. Although the transcription of these three genes has been studied previously (Kós, P. B., Deák, Z., Cheregi, O., and Vass, I. (2008) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1777, 74-83), the protein quantification had not been(More)
Water binding to the Mn(4)O(5)Ca cluster of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) of Photosystem II (PSII) poised in the S(2) state was studied via H(2)(17)O- and (2)H(2)O-labeling and high-field electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. Hyperfine couplings of coordinating (17)O (I = 5/2) nuclei were detected using W-band (94 GHz) electron-electron(More)
Cyanobacterial photosystem 2 and cytochrome b(6)f complexes have been structurally resolved up to the molecular level while the adjustment of their function in response to environmental and intracellular parameters is based on various modifications of these complexes which have not yet been resolved in detail. This minireview summarizes recent results on(More)
Nanosecond transient absorption spectroscopy has been used to study reaction centre (RC) chlorophyll triplet quenching by carotenoid in intact photosystem II cores from T. elongatus with closed RCs. We found a triplet beta-carotene ((3)Car) signal (absorption difference maximum at 530 nm) that is sensitized by the RC chlorophyll (Chl) triplet with a(More)
The interaction of Cu(II) with the ligand tdci (1,3,5-trideoxy-1,3,5-tris(dimethylamino)-cis-inositol) was studied both in the solid state and in solution. The complexes that were formed were also tested for phosphoesterase activity. The pentanuclear complex [Cu(5)(tdciH(-2))(tdci)(2)(OH)(2)(NO(3))(2)](NO(3))(4).6H(2)O consists of two dinuclear units and(More)
