ATP, the ‘universal biological energy currency’, is synthesized by utilizing energy either from oxidation of fuels or from light, via the process of oxidative and photo-phosphorylation respectively. The process is mediated by the enzyme F1F0-ATP synthase, using the free energy of ion gradients in the final energy catalyzing step, i.e., the synthesis of ATP from ADP and inorganic phosphate (Pi). The details of the molecular mechanism of ATP synthesis are among the most important fundamental… Expand
A mechano-chemiosmotic model for the coupling of electron and proton transfer to ATP synthesis in energy-transforming membranes: a personal perspective
TLDR
An alternative modified model for the coupling of electron and proton transfer to ATP synthesis is presented, which was initially developed by Albert Lester Lehninger and is not an accepted model for ATP synthesis, but it is presented here for further examination and test. Expand
Revisiting the Chemiosmotic Theory: Coupled Transport of Anion and Proton for ATP Synthesis

Oxidative phosphorylation revisited
TLDR
It is concluded that the energy‐transducing complexes in oxidative phosphorylation and photosynthesis are proton‐dicarboxylic acid anion cotransporters and not simply electrogenic proton translocators, necessitate revision of previous theories of biological energy transduction, coupling, and ATP synthesis.

New perspectives on photosynthetic phosphorylation in the light of a torsional mechanism of energy transduction and ATP synthesis
TLDR
A new concept of ion translocation, energy transduction and coupling at the overall physiological level in photophosphorylation has been presented and a large number of novel experimentally testable predictions have been made and shown to arise as logical consequences of the new perspectives.

Isolation and in silico functional analysis of MtATP6, a 6-kDa subunit of mitochondrial F₁F0-ATP synthase, in response to abiotic stress.
TLDR
Promoter analysis demonstrated that RMtATP6 and AtMt ATP6 include cis-acting elements such as ABRE, MYC/MYB, GT element in the upstream region, which respond to abscisic acid stress hormone and might show vital its roles in biotic and abiotic tolerance as an early-stress responsive gene. Expand
How the Nucleus and Mitochondria Communicate in Energy Production During Stress: Nuclear MtATP6, an Early-Stress Responsive Gene, Regulates the Mitochondrial F1F0-ATP Synthase Complex
TLDR
It seems that 6-kDa subunit, as an early response gene and nuclear regulatory factor, translocates to mitochondria and completes the F1F0-ATP synthase complex to enhance ATP production and maintain ion homeostasis under stress conditions. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that the chemiosmotic theory was beset with a large number of major shortcomings ever since the time when it was first proposed in the 1960s and has been rectified by a quantitative, unified molecular-level theory that leads to a deeper and far more accurate understanding of biological energy coupling and ATP synthesis.

Crucial role of the membrane potential for ATP synthesis by F(1)F(o) ATP synthases.
TLDR
The membrane potential and proton gradient are not equivalent under normal operating conditions far from equilibrium, and the finding that only the membrane potential induces a rotary torque that drives the counter-rotation of the a and c subunits in the F(o) motor of Propionigenium modestum ATP synthase is corroborated.

It is shown that, contrary to the accepted wisdom, the ‘acid bath’ procedure used to study the chloroplast enzyme develops not only a ΔpH but also a membrane potential, and that this potential is essential for ATP synthesis. Expand
Kinetic model of ATP synthase: pH dependence of the rate of ATP synthesis
TLDR
An expression has been obtained to explain the pH dependence of the rate of ATP synthesis by ATP synthase under steady state operating conditions and it is shown that ΔpH and Δψ are kinetically inequivalent driving forces for ATP synthesis. Expand

TLDR
The end result of the coupling between the flows through the o/r and h/d pathways in oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria is that, for the equivalent of each pair of electrons traversing the respiratory chain, up to 3 anhydro-bond equivalents may normally traverse the h/D pathway from adenosine diphosphate plus inorganic phosphate (ADP +Pi) to water.
