Early Steps in Bacterial Photosynthesis. Comparison of Three Mechanisms

  • Chapter

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA,volume 149)

Abstract

Mechanisms for the early electron transfer steps in the bacterial photosynthetic reaction center are discussed. An internal consistency test is described which places a real constraint on the unknown parameters. A resulting possible paradox is described, together with proposed electric field measurements and an alternate mechanism.
