The profanation of the singly reduced quinones Q::\ and QJj and the doubly reduced quinone Q~is discussed. Q::\ and QJj are not protonated directly in contrast to Q~which forms Q8 H2 • Experimental evidence is presented showing that Q8 H2 leaves the reaction center (RC). It is shown that this process is compatible with the three-dimensional structure of the RC. A model for the profanation involving a chain of protonatable residues connecting Q8 with the aqueous interface was tested by replacing… CONTINUE READING
