Abstract

The primary reaction of photosynthesis is light-driven charge separation, carried out in reaction centres, which are complexes of integral membrane proteins and cofactors. The recent determination of the crystal structures of the reaction centres of two photosynthetic bacteria provides a basis for a quantitative understanding of the primary electron transfer processes of photosynthesis.
