The detailed chemical mechanism of the four steps of photosynthetic oxidation of two molecules of water to yield molecular oxygen plus four protons is under contention. The observed release of protons is a composite of the chemical production and more indirect reactions such as electrostatically induced shifts of acid/base equilibria of peripheral amino acids. In thylakoids we studied the extent and the rate (at microsecond time resolution) of proton release and uptake by each of the four… CONTINUE READING
