We investigated the electronic structure of the photosystem II reaction center (PSII RC) in relation to the light-induced charge separation process using Stark spectroscopy on a series of site-directed PSII RC mutants from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. The site-directed mutations modify the protein environment of the cofactors involved in charge separation (P
