Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the interactions of protons with photosystem II (PSII). The location of the oxygen-evolving center (OEC) of the PSII toward the inside of the thylakoid membrane has important consequences. The protons generated during the oxidation of water can be released to the inside of the thylakoid and are, thus, able to contribute to the protonic energy needed in the phosphorylation of ADP to ATP. The enzyme complex of the OEC can operate in a slightly acid… CONTINUE READING
