Abstract

Abstract Various PS I preparations from higher plants and cyanobacteria are found to contain vitamin K 1, or phylloquinone, in a stoichiometry of 2 vitamin K 1/P700. Extractions of lyophilized PS I preparations with organic solvents led to removal of one molecule of vitamin K 1 but conditions have not been established for the removal of the second quinone. The quinone-depleted PS I complex ( ~ 1 vitamin K 1/P700) was fully active in transferring electrons at both physiological and cryogenic temperatures, indicating one vitamin K 1 molecule was not required for these activities.
