The mechanism and kinetics of electron transfer in isolated D1/D2-cyt(b559) photosystem (PS) II reaction centers (RCs) and in intact PSII cores have been studied by femtosecond transient absorption and kinetic compartment modeling. For intact PSII, a component of approximately 1.5 ps reflects the dominant energy-trapping kinetics from the antenna by the RC. A 5.5-ps component reflects the apparent lifetime of primary charge separation, which is faster by a factor of 8-12 than assumed so far… CONTINUE READING
