Three-dimensional structures of photosynthetic reaction centers

  title={Three-dimensional structures of photosynthetic reaction centers},
  author={C. Roy D. Lancaster and Hartmut Michel},
  journal={Photosynthesis Research},
In this article, the three-dimensional structures of photosynthetic reaction centers (RCs) are presented mainly on the basis of the X-ray crystal structures of the RCs from the purple bacteria Rhodopseudomonas (Rp.) viridis and Rhodobacter (Rb.) sphaeroides. In contrast to earlier comparisons and on the basis of the best-defined Rb. sphaeroides structure, a number of the reported differences between the structures cannot be confirmed. However, there are small conformational differences which… CONTINUE READING
