The photoreduction of the secondary quinone acceptor QB in reaction centers (RCs) of the photosynthetic bacteria Rhodobacter (Rb.) capsulatus has been investigated by light-induced FTIR difference spectroscopy in 1H2O and 2H2O. The Q-B/QB FTIR spectra reflect reorganization of the protein upon electron transfer, changes of protonation state of carboxylic… (More)
