Abstract: Kinetics of electron transfer from the bound tetraheme cytochrome c to the primary donor (P) have been measured in isolated reaction centers of the purple bacterium Rhodopseudomonas viridis by time-resolved flash absorption spectroscopy. The influence of two major parameters has been studied: temperature (7-305 K) and the redox state of the cytochrome. Most experiments were done with one heme (c-559), two hemes (c-559 and c-556), or three hemes (c-559, c-556, and c-552) poised in a reduced state before the fla…
