Modeling of excitation transfer pathways have been carried out for the structure of Spirulina platensis C-phycocyanin. Calculations by Förster mechanism using the crystal structure coordinates determined in our laboratory indicate ultra-fast lateral energy transfer rates between pairs of chromophores attached to two adjacent hexamer disks. The pairwise transfer times of the order of a few pico-seconds correspond to resonance transitions between peripheral β155 chromophores. A quantitative lateral energy transfer model for C-phycocyanin light-harvesting antenna rods that is suggestive to its native structural organization emerges from this study.
