Flash-induced formation of an electric potential difference (delta psi) was monitored by a direct method in chromatophores associated with the collodion phospholipid membrane. In Rhodospirillum rubrum and Rhodopseudomonas sphaeriodes chromatophores, the kinetics of delta psi generation exhibit fast (tau less than or equal to 0.3 microseconds) and slow (tau congruent to 200 microseconds) phases, the latter observed in the presence of exogenous quinones. Comparison of the kinetic and… Expand

Fast phases of the generation of the transmembrane electric potential in chromatophores of the photosynthetic bacterium Ectothiorhodospira shaposhnikovii
Abstract Ectothiorhodospira shaposhnikovii chromatophores were associated with a collodion film and kinetics of generation of the transmembrane electric potential (Δψ) were investigated in theExpand
Membrane Phosphorylation: Chemiosmotic Concept and Other Hypotheses
In this chapter we shall first consider and, as far as possible, formulate precisely the theoretical approaches to the mechanism of membrane phosphorylation proposed during the last 30 years. SpecialExpand
