What Are the Oxidation States of Manganese Required To Catalyze Photosynthetic Water Oxidation?

Kolling, Derrick R. J; Cox, Nicholas; Ananyev, Gennady; Pace, Ronald; Dismukes, G. Charles


Photosynthetic O₂ production from water is catalyzed by a cluster of four manganese ions and a tyrosine residue that comprise the redox-active components of the water-oxidizing complex (WOC) of photosystem II (PSII) in all known oxygenic phototrophs. Knowledge of the oxidation states is indispensable for understanding the fundamental principles of catalysis by PSII and the catalytic mechanism of the WOC. Previous spectroscopic studies and redox titrations predicted the net oxidation state of...[Show more]
