Designing photosystem II: molecular engineering of photo-catalytic proteins

Conlan, Brendon


Biological photosynthesis utilizes membrane-bound pigment/protein complexes to convert light into chemical energy through a series of electron-transfer events. In the unique photosystem II (PSII) complex these electron-transfer events result in the oxidation of water to molecular oxygen. PSII is an extremely complex enzyme and in order to exploit its unique ability to convert sunlight into chemical energy it will be necessary to make a minimal model. Here we will briefly describe how PSII...[Show more]
