This thermodynamically difficult process is only achieved in Nature by the unique pigment/protein complex known as Photosystem II, using sunlight to power the reaction. The central chlorophyll molecule of the reaction center is shown with the arrow (notice the second reaction center in the bottom half--photosystem II is composed of two identical halves). Metabolic Reprogramming in Chloroplasts under Heat Stress in Plants. We have also found that the level of alpha-tocopherolquinone, an oxidation product of alpha-tocopherol, increases as the alpha-tocopherol is consumed. Labeling patterns by azido-atrazine are compared for thylakoids, plastoquinone-depleted thylakoids, and different photosystem II preparations from spinach and Chlamydomonas. The redox potential of the primary plastoquinone electron acceptor Q A, E m (Q A /Q A −), in an oxygen-evolving photosystem (PS) II complex from a thermophilic cyanobacterium Thermosynechococcus elongatus was determined to be −140 ± 2 mV vs. SHE by thin-layer cell spectroelectrochemistry for the first time. For example, subunit O is, Absorbs light energy and converts it to chemical energy, Mobile intra-thylakoid membrane electron carrier, Also known as the oxygen evolving center, or OEC, This page was last edited on 31 October 2020, at 01:02.

[1] DCMU is a chemical often used in laboratory settings to inhibit photosynthesis. Although the short-chain plastoquinones were applied in the oxidized form, it is known that benzoquinones are efficient electron acceptors from photosystem II, commonly used for measuring photosystem II activity, and they are readily reduced to the quinol forms. Two functional sites of phosphatidylglycerol for regulation of reaction of plastoquinone Q(B) in photosystem II. Since plastoquinone is a two electron acceptors, we are confronted with a problem similar to that of oxygen formation. A specific role for tocopherol and of chemical singlet oxygen quenchers in the maintenance of photosystem II structure and function in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. This incentivized researchers to take their crystals to a different X-ray facilities, called X-ray Free Electron Lasers, such as SLAC in the USA. Epub 2006 May 19. Frederix1, Xavier Periole1 & Siewert J. Marrink1 Plastoquinone (PLQ) acts as an electron carrier between photosystem II (PSII) and the cytochrome b 6f complex.

Here, we report the effect of inactivation of psbL on the directional forward electron flow of photosystem II as compared to that of the wild type and the psbJ deletion mutant, which is impaired in PSII electron flow to plastoquinone [Regel et al. Plastoquinol is more active than α-tocopherol in singlet oxygen scavenging during high light stress of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. This mini-review briefly summarizes our current knowledge on the reaction pattern of light-driven water splitting and the structure of Photosystem II that acts as a water:plastoquinone oxidoreductase. Based on this experiment, Bessel Kok and co-workers [17] introduced a cycle of five flash-induced transitions of the so-called S-states, describing the four redox states of OEC: When four oxidizing equivalents have been stored (at the S4-state), OEC returns to its basic S0-state. Moreover, artificial photosynthetic water-splitting may contribute to the effective use of sunlight as an alternative energy-source. It is located in the thylakoid membrane of plants, algae, and cyanobacteria. Photosystem II is a specialized protein complex that uses light energy to oxidize water, resulting in the release of molecular oxygen into the atmosphere, and to reduce plastoquinone, which is released into the hydrophobic core of the photosynthetic Epub 2011 Dec 13. [8][9][10] While obtaining these structures was in itself a great feat, they did not show the oxygen-evolving complex in full detail. Currently structures of the S1 state and the S3 state's have been published almost simultaneously from two different groups, showing the addition of an oxygen molecule designated O6 between Mn1 and Mn4,[13][14] suggesting that this may be the site on the oxygen evolving complex, where oxygen is produced. eCollection 2019. Plastoquinone (PQ) is an isoprenoid quinone molecule involved in the electron transport chain in the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis. jkruk@mol.uj.edu.pl HHS 2017 Jul 13;8:1197. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2017.01197. Plastoquinone (PLQ) acts as an electron carrier between photosystem II (PSII) and the cytochrome b6f complex.
