PSII is a complicated complex comprising outer light-harvesting complex (LHCII), core antenna complex (including CP43 and CP47), reactive center complex (RC) and Manganese cluster, and its components are so located and assigned as to ensure the quick and efficient energy and electron transfers.
It is generally believed that the core antenna complex CP43 and CP47 receive energy from outer LHCII system and assistant antennas, and then transfer the energy to RC complex to complete the energy transfer.
the significance of the pigments in the reaction center as well as those in the antenna complex
several students, depending on the size of the class, designated as chlorophylls a and b, and carotenes and xanthophylls in the antenna complex
We meet the two chlorophyll a molecules in the reaction center, surrounded by the antenna complex pigments, and other characters in the play.
2 There are the antenna complex pigments to the rescue
The sun shines light on various points in the class, eventually hitting one of the pigments in the antenna complex.
3 When an antenna complex pigment in plain sight Absorbs a photon of light,
8 Another photon of light and the antenna complex is excited.
