Abstract: Photosynthesis is the process by which plants and many species of bacteria convert energy from sunlight into chemical energy used to power their metabolism. As these plants and bacteria are eaten, the chemical energy moves up the food chain and thus photosynthesis provides fuel for almost all life on Earth. Photosynthetic reaction centers are the workhorses of photosynthesis. Upon photo-excitation, these multi-domain integral membrane proteins drive an electron transport chain that results in a ... more
