Theoretical investigation of the electronic asymmetry of the special pair cation radical in the photosynthetic type-II reaction center.

Abstract

The electronic asymmetry of the special pair cation radical in the photosynthetic reaction center was studied, using density functional calculations with a polarizable continuum model and a point charge model as the protein environment. The calculated spin density distribution between the halves of the special pair from Rhodobacter sphaeroides agreed well… (More)
