Stark effect in P700, the primary electron donor of Photosystem I



Stark effect in P700, the primary electron donor of Photosystem I



Febs Letters 286(1-2): 110-112



Quadratic Stark effect in CP1 pigment-protein complex was examined at low temperatures in the red spectral region. The Stark spectra of samples containing P700 in reduced form exhibit a strong negative band at 704 nm, which disappears on chemical oxidation of P700. The change in permanent dipole moment, delta mu, of P700 on electronic excitation estimated from these spectra was found to be between 4.7 and 7.7 Debye units. It is suggested to reflect the charge-transfer contribution to the excited state of P700. For antenna chlorophyll, delta mu approximately equal to 1 D was obtained in accordance with the data for monomeric chlorophyll.
