Preparations of photosystem II membranes, in which the active site of oxygen evolution is exposed to the bulk aqueous phase, have facilitated biochemical studies of the photosynthetic oxygen-evolving complex (the photosynthetic water oxidase complex). Described here are photosystem II membrane preparations highly active in oxygen evolution and three extrinsic membrane proteins for which the molecular properties and functions in oxygen evolution have been characterized.
