The photoinduced changes in structure of a molecular complex of reactionary centre (RC) of Rhodobacter sphaeroides in the course of intramolecular electron transfer are investigated. As revealed, the relaxation kinetics of RC photomobilization electron possesses S-shaped time dependence of electron return rate from an acceptor after exciting-light switching off. A two-level model of electron transport is proposed. Within this model, a set of identical, dynamical in time RCs is considered. These RCs possess non-exponential electron return kinetics, which is caused by viscoelastic properties of RCs structure and environment. The analysis of x-ray structural data for RCs, which are in light-adapted and dark-adapted states, is carried out. A possible link of RC-relaxation slow component and movement of the Qb ubiquinone deformed part within the viscous environment during its return in dark-adapted state conformation is discussed.
