Photosystem II (PS II) is a large protein complex which catalyzes the light driven oxidation of water. The molecular oxygen produced as a byproduct of PS II activity is essential for all aerobic life on earth. The assembly and repair pathways of the PS II complex are incompletely understood, so we investigated the function of two proteins thought to be involved, Psb27 and Ycf48. Our findings suggest that PS II centers assembled without Ycf48 factor do not function correctly, and PS II assembly is severely impaired when both Ycf48 and Psb27 are absent.
