Absorption spectra of the isolated D1/D2/cytochrome b-559 complex have been measured in the temperature range 80-300 K. All spectra were analyzed in terms of a linear combination of Gaussian bands and the thermal broadening data interpreted in terms of a model in which the spectrum of each pigment site is broadened by (a) a homogeneous component due to linear electron-phonon coupling to a low-frequency protein vibration and (b) an inhomogeneous component associated with stochastic fluctuations… CONTINUE READING
