What is photosystem ? Which is the pigment that acts as reaction centre ? Describe the interaction of photosystem I and photosystem II.

Â

Photosystem : It is a group of pigment molecules and electron acceptors which take part in oxidation and reduction reaction in photosynthesis for producing ATP and NADPH.

Reaction Centre : ChlaÂ molecules Â act as reaction centres. The Chla of speacial types form different reaction centres likeÂ P680Â in PS II and P700Â in PS I.

Interaction of PS I and PS II :

PS I and PS II are interlinked in following two

ways :

Ist way : P680Â reaction centre of PS II takes energy from sunlight. Then, it emits electron which pass through number of electron acceptors and then go to P700, a reaction centre of PSI.

IInd way : The P700Â takes energy from sunlight via harvesting molecule and its electron is emitted. This electron passes through primary acceptor x and then to ferrodoxin and after this to NADP reductase.

During photolysis of H2O, the H2O splits into H+Â and OHâ€“. The OHâ€“Â changes into H2O, O2Â and electrons are released which go to P680Â molecule. The H+Â goes to NADP reductase which combines NADP, H+Â and eâ€“Â form assimilatory power called NADPH

Why Rubisco is not affected by O2 in C4 plants ?

O2 is formed in mesophyll cells while Rubisco is present in bundle sheath cells. Therefore Rubisco does not come in contact with O2 and is thus not affected by it.
