A major breakthrough in our understanding of how plants oxidize water to molecular O(2) was the discovery by P. Joliot and co-workers that the O(2) yield per flash, in a series of light flashes, oscillates with a periodicity of 4. This led to the concept by B. Kok and co-workers that these reactions involve accumulation of four positive charges in independent "O(2)-evolving centers," which undergo a series of changes in their redox state (the so-called S states). In the present paper, we have… CONTINUE READING
