    What does it mean when it says the reaction centre loses electrons? Are these the electrons lost from the chemiosmosis?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    I think the reason you've had no responses is that you've posted the question in GCSE science and when I studied this last year it was A level biology!
    The reaction centre of the photosystem loses 2 electrons as they are excited to enter a higher energy level in the light dependent stage photosynthesis. The electrons lost from the photosystem will then be replaced by electrons from the photolysis of water.
    I hope this helps
