Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The temperature dependence of the biphasic electron transfer (ET) from the secondary acceptor A1 (phylloquinone) to iron-sulfur cluster F(X) was investigated by flash absorption spectroscopy in photosystem I (PS I) isolated from Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. While the slower phase (tau=340 ns at 295 K) slowed upon cooling according to an activation energy of 110 meV, the time constant of the faster phase (tau=11 ns at 295 K) was virtually independent of temperature. Following a suggestion in the literature that the two phases arise from bidirectional ET involving two symmetrically arranged phylloquinones, Q(K)-A and Q(K)-B, it is concluded that energetic parameters (most likely the driving forces) rather than the electronic couplings are different for ET from Q(K)-A to F(X) and from Q(K)-B to F(X). Two alternative schemes of ET in PS I are presented and discussed.
