Light-driven electron transfer reactions cause the active accumulation of protons inside thylakoids, yet at steady state the electrical potential difference across the thylakoid membrane is very small; therefore, there must be a flux of other ions to balance the charge that would otherwise be built up by the net movement of H(+). This paper presents direct measurements of ion movements through channels in the thylakoid membrane. These were made possible by fusing thylakoid vesicles from spinach… CONTINUE READING
