Abstract

Background: Substrate water must reach the buried Mn4O 5Ca cluster in Photosystem II. Results: OH produced by radiolysis modified buried amino acid residues. These were mapped onto the PS II crystal structure. Conclusion: Two groups of oxidized residues were identified which form putative pathways to the Mn4O5Ca cluster. Significance: Identification of water and oxygen channels is crucial for our understanding of Photosystem II function. © 2013 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.
