Photosynthesis is one of the most important biological processes in biosphere, which provides production of organic substances from atmospheric CO2 and water at expense of solar energy. In this review, we contemplate computer models of oxygenic photosynthesis in the context of feedback regulation of photosynthetic electron transport in chloroplasts, the(More)
This work is devoted to critical analysis and reexamination of the problem of lateral heterogeneity of the trans-thylakoid pH difference (ΔpH=pHout-pHin) in thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts. Correct measurements of ΔpH may be complicated by nonuniform partitioning of the protons pumped into the lumen of granal (stacked) and stroma-exposed thylakoids. We(More)
A mathematical model for the description of the key stages of photosynthetic electron transport and transmembrane proton transfer in chloroplasts is presented. Numerical modeling of electron and proton transport with due regard for regulatory processes on the donor and acceptor sites of photosystem I (PS I) was performed. The influence of pH-dependent(More)
In this work, we summarize results of computer simulation of electron and proton transport processes coupled to ATP synthesis in chloroplasts performed within the frames of a mathematical model developed as a system of differential equations for concentrations of electron carriers and hydrogen ion inside and outside the granal and stromal thylakoids. The(More)
In this work, using a mathematical model of light-induced stages of photosynthesis, taking into account the key stages of pH-dependent regulation on the acceptor and donor sides of PS1, we analyzed electron and proton transport in chloroplasts of higher plants and cyanobacterial cells. A comparison of computer simulation results with experimental data(More)
A mathematical model of a chloroplast was constructed, which takes into account the inhomogeneous distribution of complexes of photosystems I and II between granal and intergranal thylakoids. The structural and functional complexes of photosystems I and II, which are localized in intergranal and granal thylakoids, respectively, and the b/f complex, which is(More)
In this work we have performed a computer analysis of electron and proton transport in cyanobacterial cells using a mathematical model of light-dependent stages of photosynthesis taking into account the key stages of pH-dependent regulation of electron transport on both acceptor and donor sides of photosystem 1 (PS1). Comparison of theoretical and(More)
In this work, we studied theoretically the effects of diffusion restrictions and topological factors that could influence the efficiency of energy coupling in the heterogeneous lamellar system of higher plant chloroplasts. Our computations are based on a mathematical model for electron and proton transport in chloroplasts coupled to ATP synthesis in(More)
This study deals with effects of oxygen on the kinetics of P700 photoinduced redox transitions and on induction transients of chlorophyll fluorescence in leaves of C3 plants Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and Vicia faba. It is shown that the removal of oxygen from the leaf environment has a conspicuous effect on photosynthetic electron transport. Under anaerobic(More)
In this work, we have investigated the effects of atmospheric CO(2) and O(2) on induction events in Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves. These effects manifest themselves as multiphase kinetics of P(700) redox transitions and non-monotonous changes in chlorophyll fluorescence. Depletion of CO(2) and O(2) in air causes a decrease in linear electron flux (LEF) and(More)
