Historical Introduction to Photosystem I: The Discovery of the A1 and A2(Fx?) Acceptors by Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy
This chapter summarizes some of the results obtained by the authors, in a collaborative work done in 1976–1977, about the Photosystem I electron acceptors. The results are placed in a historical perspective and discussed in the light of the present knowledge on the Photosystem I reaction center.
