Quantitative assessment of intrinsic carbonic anhydrase activity and the capacity for bicarbonate oxidation in photosystem II

Hillier, Warwick; McConnell, Iain; Badger, Murray; Boussac, Alain; Klimov, Vyacheslav; Dismukes, G Charles; Wydrzynski, Thomas


On the basis of equilibrium isotopic distribution experiments using 18O-labeled water, it is generally accepted that water is the sole substrate for O2 production by photosystem II (PSII). Nevertheless, recent studies indicating a direct interaction between bicarbonate and the donor side of PSII have been used to hypothesize that bicarbonate may have been a physiologically important substrate for O2 production during the evolution of PSII [Dismukes, G. C., Klimov, V. V., Baranov, S. V., Kozlov,...[Show more]
