Proton-coupled electron-transfer processes in photosystem II probed by highly resolved g-anisotropy of redox-active tyrosine YZ



Proton-coupled electron-transfer processes in photosystem II probed by highly resolved g-anisotropy of redox-active tyrosine YZ



Journal of the American Chemical Society 133(12): 4655-4660



The oxidation of a redox-active tyrosine residue Y(Z) in photosystem II (PSII) is coupled with proton transfer to a hydrogen-bonded D1-His190 residue. Because of the apparent proximity of Y(Z) to the water-oxidizing complex and its redox activity, it is believed that Y(Z) plays a significant role in water oxidation in PSII. We investigated the g-anisotropy of the tyrosine radical Y(Z)(•) to provide insight into the mechanism of Y(Z)(•) proton-coupled electron transfer in Mn-depleted PSII. The anisotropy was highly resolved by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy at the W-band (94.9 GHz) using PSII single crystals. The g(X)-component along the phenolic C-O bond of Y(Z)(•) was calculated by density functional theory (DFT). It was concluded from the highly resolved g-anisotropy that Y(Z) loses a phenol proton to D1-His190 upon tyrosine oxidation, and D1-His190 redonates the same proton back to Y(Z)(•) upon reduction.
