Some Zero- and High-Field Electron Spin Resonance and Time-Resolved Fluorescence Studies on Isolated Photosystem II Particles
Primary photochemical processes in photosystem II (PSII) — energy transfer and charge separation — can be best studied free from possible interference from photosystem I (PSI), by separating the photosystems using biochemical techniques or by the use of mutants of plants which specifically lack PSI. The use of surfactants necessary for the preparation of isolated PSII can give rise to artefacts, whilst the effects of mutations are not always simple. A combined approach is therefore preferable.
