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 chargedExpand
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 fromExpand
Mechanism of ATP synthesis and coupled proton transport: studies with purified chloroplast coupling factor
Abstract Information about the mechanism of ATP synthesis and its coupling to proton pumping across membranes has been obtained through structural and kinetic studies with purified and reconstitutedExpand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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.
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.
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. In this chain a current of electrons, derived from degradation of nutrients, along with protons, are used to reExpand
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 systemExpand


A Redox Pump for the Biological Performance of Osmotic Work, and Its Relation to the Kinetics of Free Ion Diffusion Across Membranes
Biological energetics, in all their episodic variety, may be regarded as the life history of the electrons from hydrogen atoms to water, and all the directed energy of aerobic organisms lies between the reforming and the reforming of H 2 O. Expand
Studies on the electron transport system. XI. Correlation of the morphology and enzymic properties of mitochondrial and sub-mitochondrial particles.
Abstract The morphological changes which mitochondria and their derivative particles undergo during isolation from beef-heart muscle have been studied by electron microscopy. Mitochondria isolatedExpand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Light-stimulated absorption in green cells and other kinds of active transport are studied in relation to respiration and plant cell accumulation. Expand
