Abstract

The structure of the Photosynthetic reaction centre from the purple bacterium Rhodopseudomonas viridis has been solved by X-ray structure analysis. The pigment arrangement, the folding of the protein subunits and pigment-protein interactions are described. The relation to photosystem II reaction centers and evolutionary aspects are discussed.
