Even prior to the publication of the crystal structures for photosystem II (PSII), it had already been suggested that water, O(2) and H(+) channels exist in PSII to achieve directed transport of these molecules, and to avoid undesirable side reactions. Computational efforts to uncover these channels and investigate their properties are still at early stages, and have so far only been based on the static PSII structure.
