Photodamage to the oxygen evolving complex of photosystem II by visible light

Zavaleta Fernandez de Cordova (Zavafer) , Alonso; Cheah, Mun Hon (Michael); Hillier, Warwick; Chow, Wah S (Fred); Takahashi, Shunichi


Light damages photosynthetic machinery, primarily photosystem II (PSII), and it results in photoinhibition. A new photodamage model, the two-step photodamage model, suggests that photodamage to PSII initially occurs at the oxygen evolving complex (OEC) by light energy absorbed by manganese and that the PSII reaction center is subsequently damaged by light energy absorbed by photosynthetic pigments due to the limitation of electrons to the PSII reaction center. However, it is still uncertain...[Show more]
