Flash-induced redox reactions in spinach PS II core particles were investigated with absorbance difference spectroscopy in the UV-region and EPR spectroscopy. In the absence of artificial electron acceptors, electron transport was limited to a single turnover. Addition of the electron acceptors DCBQ and ferricyanide restored the characteristic period-four oscillation in the UV absorbance associated with the S-state cycle, but not the period-two oscillation indicative of the alternating… CONTINUE READING
