Protein engineering of cytochrome b562 for quinone binding and light-induced electron transfer
The central photochemical reaction in photosystem II of green algae and plants and the reaction center of some photosynthetic bacteria involves a one-electron transfer from a light-activated chlorin complex to a bound quinone molecule. Through protein engineering, we have been able to modify a protein to mimic this reaction. A unique quinone-binding site was engineered into the Escherichia coli cytochrome 6552 by introducing a cysteine within the hydrophobic interior of the protein. Various...[Show more]
