Damaging Processes in the Reaction Center and on Its Acceptor Side During Photoinactivation of PSII Particles
Part of the
NATO ASI Series
book series (NSSA, volume 168)
The photoinactivation of photosystem II is a very complex process which gradually affects all of its parts. A damage has been reported to occur in the reaction center itself /P680-Pheo/1,2,3,4 as wetl as on its donor /Z,D,Mn/S-states/5,6 and acceptor /QA,QB/7,8.9,10 sides. It is not clear, yet, where the photoinactivat ion starts, in what order the secondary processes occur and what the underlying mechanism of the damage is. These questions are addressed also in the present paper.
