Photo-oxidation of tyrosine in a bio-engineered bacterioferritin 'reaction centre'
The photosynthetic reaction centre (RC) is central to conversion of solar energy into chemical energy. In this thesis, in order to introduce the redox-active cofactors similar to that of the Photosystem II RC, a non-photosynthetic protein scaffold was used as an in vitro model. The protein tasked for this purpose was the heme containing bacterioferritin (BFR) protein found in E. coli. The BFR protein naturally expresses as a homodimer based on a 4-helix bundle monomer. Desirable properties...[Show more]
