All-DNA scaffolds act as templates for the organization of photosystem I model systems. A series of DNA templates composed of ZnII -protoporphyrin IX (ZnII PPIX)-functionalized G-quadruplex conjugated to the 3'- or 5'-end of the tyrosinamide (TA) aptamer and ZnII PPIX/G-quadruplex linked to the 3'- and 5'-ends of the TA aptamer through a four-thymidine bridge. Effective photoinduced electron transfer (ET) from ZnII PPIX/G-quadruplex to bipyridinium-functionalized tyrosinamide, TA-MV2+ , bound to the TA aptamer units is demonstrated. The effectiveness of the primary ET quenching of ZnII PPIX/G-quadruplex by TA-MV2+ controls the efficiency of the generation of TA-MV+. . The photosystem-controlled formation of TA-MV+. by the different photosystems dictates the secondary activation of the ET cascade corresponding to the ferredoxin-NADP+ reductase (FNR)-catalysed reduction of NADP+ to NADPH by TA-MV+. , and the sequestered alcohol dehydrogenase catalysed reduction of acetophenone to 1-phenylethanol by NADPH. © 2020 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
