Abstract

The structural and functional consequences of changing the coordination state of one of the bacteriochlorophyll (BCh1) cofactors in the purple bacterial reaction center have been explored, A combination of steady state spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography was used to demonstrate that mutagenesis of residue 181 of the L-polypeptide from Phe to Arg (FL181R) causes the BCh1 at the accessory (B
