Artificial ion channels are introduced into a photosystem II photoelectrical conversion system to mimic the photocurrent regulating of the natural PSII energy system on the thylakoid membrane. In the composite system, PSII complexes act as pumps to convert light into currents and artificial ion channels act as valves to regulate light-induced ionic currents.
