The Semiquinone-Iron Complex of Photosystem II: Structural Insights from ESR and Theoretical Simulation; Evidence that the Native Ligand to the Non-Heme Iron Is Carbonate

Cox, Nicholas; Jin, Lu; Jaszewski, Adrian; Smith, Paul J.; Krausz, Elmars; Rutherford, A. William; Pace, Ronald


The semiquinone-iron complex of photosystem II was studied using electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy and density functional theory calculations. Two forms of the signal were investigated: 1), the native g approximately 1.9 form; and 2), the g approximately 1.84 form, which is well known in purple bacterial reaction centers and occurs in photosystem II when treated with formate. The g approximately 1.9 form shows low- and high-field edges at g approximately 3.5 and g < 0.8, respectively,...[Show more]
