18O Isotope exchange measurements reveal that calcium is involved in the binding of one substrate-water molecule to the oxygen evolving complex in photosystem II

Hendry, G; Wydrzynski, Thomas


Direct evidence is presented to show that calcium is inherently involved in the binding of one of the two substrate-water molecules to the oxygen-evolving complex in photosystem II. Previous rapid (millisecond range) 18O isotope exchange measurements between added H218O and the photogenerated O2 have shown that the two substrate-water molecules bind to separate sites throughout the S-state cycle, as revealed by their kinetically distinct rates of 18O exchange [Hillier, W., and Wydrzynski, T....[Show more]
