On the coupling of electron transport to phosphorylation
After a general thermodynamic discussion of the coupling of oxidation to phosphorylation, quantitative treatments of free energy transduction based upon the proton gradient model, the charged
Light Induced Proton Gradient links Electron Transport and Phosphorylation
A rapid ph detection technique has provided quantitative evidence for the idea that the link between light driven electron transport and ATP synthesis is an electrochemical gradient resulting from
Phosphorylation coupled to nitrate respiration.

Electron transfer in peptides and proteins.
In this tutorial review, the models explaining ET through peptides and proteins are discussed and the biological relevance of ET is elucidated.
Synthesis of ATP coupled with action of membrane protonic pumps at the octane–water interface
This work has studied the main stage of this process, the coupling of ATP synthetase to the action of membrane protonic pumps at an octane–water interface.
Mechanism of Photosynthetic Production and Respiratory Reduction of Molecular Dioxygen: A Biophysical and Biochemical Comparison
This chapter describes the role of the redox couple H2O/O2 as the cornerstone of biological Gibbs free energy transformation in all higher forms of life on earth.
Ion-Coupled Transport of Organic Solutes across Biological Membranes
The decade between 1957 and 1967 was a remarkable period in the evolution of our understanding of the relations between membrane transport and energy transduction by biological systems.
Regulation of proton-coupled electron transfer in cytochrome c oxidase : The role of membrane potential, proton pathways and ATP
Cytochrome c oxidase (CytcO) is the final electron acceptor of the respiratory chain and a current of electrons, derived from degradation of nutrients, along with protons, are used to re-establish the electron chain.
Coupling of electron transfer to ion transport in macromosaic membrane system
Electron transfer can be readily coupled to ion transport by a circulating current generated in a novel macromosaic membrane system as in a biological system. A circulating current in the system


Interpretation of Sodium the Exchange of Radio-Sodium in Isolated Muscle
Calculated the minimal energy required for extrusion of sodium from the normal frog's sartorius if sodium entered as fast as potassium, and found that more than the energy available from the metabolism of the resting muscle would be needed.
On the mechanism of secretion of ions by gastric mucosa and by other tissues.
It is worthy of note that infusion of potato starch for 15 min. at 630, followed by a further 15 minutes before centrifuging, led to the development of fractions of both amylopectin and amylose, which differ from the main portions of these substances.
Light-stimulated absorption in green cells and other kinds of active transport are studied in relation to respiration and plant cell accumulation.
