The short-lived (<1 ps) initial intermediate state P(+)B(L)(-) in the photoinduced charge separation process of the bacterial photosynthetic reaction center has been trapped in two D(LL)-based Rhodobacter capsulatus mutants that have Tyr at position M208 and lack the bacteriopheophytin electron acceptor H(L). Transient state P(+)B(L)(-) is characterized by… CONTINUE READING
