Electron transfer kinetics in photosynthetic reaction centers embedded in trehalose glasses: trapping of conformational substates at room temperature.

Abstract

We report on room temperature electron transfer in the reaction center (RC) complex purified from Rhodobacter sphaeroides. The protein was embedded in trehalose-water systems of different trehalose/water ratios. This enabled us to get new insights on the relationship between RC conformational dynamics and long-range electron transfer. In particular, we… (More)
