A refined computational structural model of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) of photosystem II (PSII) is introduced. The model shows that the cuboidal core Mn3CaO4 with a "dangler" Mn ligated to a corner mu4-oxide ion is maximally consistent with the positioning of the amino acids around the metal cluster as characterized by XRD models and high-resolution spectroscopic data, including polarized EXAFS of oriented single crystals and isotropic EXAFS. It is, therefore, natural to expect that the… CONTINUE READING
