Abstract

A theoretical study of energy-transfer rates between chlorophyll a molecules within light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b complexes of photosystem II (LHC-II) based on transient absorption recovery data [(1985) FEBS Lett. 193, 267-270] has been made using a trimer model of interacting chromophores [(1977) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 462, 642-658]. It provides a kinetic explanation of the data and shows that the experimental results on LHC-II are consistent with and therefore support the model.
