Structure of cyanobacterial Photosystem I

  title={Structure of cyanobacterial Photosystem I},
  author={Ingo Grotjohann and Petra Fromme},
  journal={Photosynthesis Research},
Photosystem I is one of the most fascinating membrane protein complexes for which a structure has been determined. It functions as a bio-solar energy converter, catalyzing one of the first steps of oxygenic photosynthesis. It captures the light of the sun by means of a large antenna system, consisting of chlorophylls and carotenoids, and transfers the energy to the center of the complex, driving the transmembrane electron transfer from plastoquinone to ferredoxin. Cyanobacterial Photosystem I… CONTINUE READING
