The core of photosystem I (PS1) is composed of the two related integral membrane polypeptides, PsaA and PsaB, which bind two symmetrical branches of cofactors, each consisting of two chlorophylls and a phylloquinone, that potentially link the primary electron donor and the tertiary acceptor. In an effort to identify amino acid residues near the(More)
The temperature dependence of the biphasic electron transfer (ET) from the secondary acceptor A1 (phylloquinone) to iron-sulfur cluster F(X) was investigated by flash absorption spectroscopy in photosystem I (PS I) isolated from Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. While the slower phase (tau=340 ns at 295 K) slowed upon cooling according to an activation energy of(More)
Photosystem I (PS I) is a transmembranal multisubunit complex that mediates light-induced electron transfer from plactocyanine to ferredoxin. The electron transfer proceeds from an excited chlorophyll a dimer (P700) through a chlorophyll a (A0), a phylloquinone (A1), and a [4Fe-4S] iron-sulfur cluster FX, all located on the core subunits PsaA and PsaB, to(More)
