Original Images of Photosynthetic Complexes by Dr. Jon Nield

Please find here a collection of images.
They are constantly revised and updated - the most recent being found here.

The models relate to Higher Plants, unless otherwise indicated. All images 1024 pixels wide (~50-200k)
.
Images specific to higher plant PSII:

  1. Schematic diagram of the PSII reaction centre redox components
  2. The S-state cycle for the oxygen-evolving reactions of PSII
  3. Predicted membrane folding pattern of the spinach D1 protein
  4. Predicted membrane folding pattern of the spinach D2 protein
  5. Cytochrome b559 structure model
  6. Predicted membrane folding pattern of the spinach CP47 protein
  7. Predicted membrane folding pattern of the spinach CP43 protein
A number of key PDB files (http://www.rcsb.org) should also be investigated by anyone interested in photosystem reaction centre structures.
See 1S5L.pdb (Ferreira et al., 2004) for PSII, 1Q90.pdb (Stroebel et al., 2003) for Cytochrome b6f, 1JB0.pdb (Jordan et al. 2001) for PSI, 1QZV.pdb (Ben-Shem et al., 2003) for LHCI-PSI; 1QO1.pdb for ATP synthase (Walker & co-workers).
