In bacterial photosynthetic reaction centers, the protonation events associated with the different reduction states of the two quinone molecules constitute intrinsic probes of both the electrostatic interactions and the different kinetic events occurring within the protein in response to the light-generated introduction of a charge. The kinetics and stoichiometries of proton uptake on formation of the primary semiquinone Q(A)(-) and the secondary acceptor Q(B)(-) after the first and second… CONTINUE READING
