Explaining the Different Geometries of the Water Oxidising Complex in the Nominal S3 State Crystal Structures of Photosystem II at 2.25 A and 2.35 A

Petrie, Simon; Stranger, Robert; Pace, Ronald


Recently two atomic resolution crystal structures of Photosystem II, in the double flashed, nominal S3 intermediate state of its Mn4Ca water oxidising complex (WOC), have been presented (Young et al., Nature 2016, 540, 453; Suga et al., Nature 2017, 543, 131). These structures are at 2.25 Å and 2.35 Å resolution, respectively. Although highly similar in most respects, the structures differ in a key region within the WOC catalytic site. In the 2.25 Å structure, one oxy species (O5) is observed...[Show more]
