Plastocyanin (Pc) is a copper-containing protein, which functions as an electron carrier between the cytochrome b(6)f and photosystem 1 (PS1) complexes in the photosynthetic electron transfer (ET) chain. The ET is mediated by His87 situated in the hydrophobic surface in the north region of Pc. Also situated in this region is Leu12, which mutated to other… CONTINUE READING
