Boussac A, Rutherford AW, 1988, Ca<sup>2+</sup> binding to the oxygen evolving enzyme varies with the redox state of the Mn cluster, FEBS Letters, Vol: 236, Pages: 432-436, ISSN: 0014-5793

Oxygen evolution by the mangano-enzyme of photosystem II is inhibited by Ca2+ depletion induced by NaCl washing and restored by Ca2+ addition. The effectiveness of NaCl treatment in inhibiting oxygen evolution in photosystem II was studied after a series of preilluminating flashes. The susceptibility of the enzyme to NaCl treatment varied with the number of preilluminating flashes and this variation showed an oscillation pattern with a period of four. This pattern is characteristic of cycling through the four long-lived intermediate states in the enzyme cycle (i.e. the states, S0, S1, S2, S3). The relative extent of inhibition corresponding to each of the S states was as follows: S3 > S0≈S2 > S1. From these results it is concluded that Ca2+ binding is dependent on the S states and that Ca2+ probably plays a fundamental role in the mechanism of water splitting. The results also help to explain the conflicting reports of the extent of inhibition induced by NaCl washing and the controversy over which electron transfer step is inhibited by Ca2+ depletion. © 1988.

Rutherford AW, Seibert M, Metz JG, 1988, Characterisation of the low-fluorescent (LF1) mutant of Scenedesmus by EPR, BBA - Bioenergetics, Vol: 932, Pages: 171-176, ISSN: 0005-2728

An EPR study of the low fluorescent mutant, LF1, of the green alga, Scenedesmus obliquus, has been performed and the following results were obtained. (1) Stable photoinduced charge separation occurs at low temperature forming the characteristic EPR signals from Q-AFe2+, the primary semiquinone-iron complex, indicating no major structural modification of the electron acceptor complex in the LF1 mutant. (2) The source of the electron in this reaction at 200 K is a component, probably a chlorophyll molecule, which gives rise to an EPR signal at g ≈ 2.0026 when photooxidized; in the wild type the S2 manganese multiline EPR signal is generated under these conditions. (3) Contrary to a previous report (Biochim. Biophys. Acta 682 (1982) 106-114), Signal II is present in the dark in LF1; however, it exhibits different microwave power saturation characteristics from those of Signal II in the wild type. These results show that the LF1 mutant has a functional reaction centre which lacks the redox active manganese of the O2-evolving enzyme. In addition, as reported previously, cytochrome b-559 is in the low-potential, oxidized form in LF1, while it is largely in the high-potential, reduced form in the wild-type. This effect is thought to be only indirectly related to the 34 kDa to the 36 kDa change in D1 polypeptide size, which is assumed to be responsible for the lack of Mn binding in the LF1 mutant. © 1988.
