 Title    Differential Inhibition and Rephasing of Photosystem II Electron Acceptor Side by Monohalogenated Acetates of Different Hydrophobicity  
 Abstract    We demonstrate here that monohalogenated acetates (M F A , m onofluoroacetate; M CA, m onochloroacetate; M BA, monobrom oacetate) are unique probes o f the electron acceptor side o f the photosystem II (PS II) reaction center: (1) they differentially inhibit the reoxidation o f the reduced primary plastoquinone electron acceptor, QA~, by the secondary plastoquinone electron acceptor QB, and increase the equilibrium [QA_] in the order: M BA > M C A > M FA; and (2) M CA and M BA rephase the PS II electron acceptor side, a rather unusual effect. This results in flash number dependence o f [QA_] with maxima at even flashes to change to odd flashes. Furthermore, we demonstrate a correlation between the inhibitory activity o f the halo-genated acetates with their hydrophobicity (i.e., partition coefficient).
