Secondary stabilization reactions and proton-coupled electron transport in photosystem II investigated by electroluminescence and fluorescence spectroscopy.

The oxidized primary electron donor in photosystem II, P(680)(+), is reduced in several phases, extending over 4 orders of magnitude in time. Especially the slower phases may reflect the back-pressure exerted by water oxidation and provide information on the reactions involved. The kinetics of secondary electron-transfer reactions in the microseconds time… CONTINUE READING
