    Abstract

    The reaction center (RC) of green sulfur bacteria belongs to the Fe-S type RC, as do the photosystem I of oxygenic photosynthetic organisms and the RC of hellobacteria. The core parts of the green sulfur bacterial and the hellobacterial RC are assumed to be homodimeric, in contrast to those of purple bacteria, photosystem I and photosystem II. This paper describes recent advances in the study of the function of the green sulfur bacterial RC.
