Electron Transfer, Field Changes, Proton Translocation and Phosphorylation in Photosynthesis
Most of the contributions of this meeting are concerned with the consumption of O2. The opposite way — the production of O2 — is realized in photosynthesis through the cleavage of water.
Iron–Sulphur Proteins
These electron transfer agents often have unusually low redox potentials. Eighteen are known from higher plants and bacteria, and are involved in nitrogen fixation as well as photosynthesis.

Ferredoxin and Photosynthetic Phosphorylation
TLDR
It has been shown that ferredoxin can catalyse, by two distinct photochemical reactions, the production of ATP in cell-free photosynthetic systems at rates comparable with the maximum rates of photosynthesis in vivo.
The Discovery of Ferredoxin and Its Role in Photosynthesis: the Work of Anthony San Pietro
The light reactions of photosynthesis occur in the thylakoids and depend on the interplay oftwo photosystems. Photosystem I, excited by light of wavelength shorter than 700 nm,generates NADPH via the
The Photosynthetic Apparatus
The purpose of this paper is to review briefly what is known about the oxygen-evolving type of photosynthesis, its efficiency, and the possibility of employing the photosynthetic apparatus as a means

Photoproduction of Hydrogen, Photofixation of Nitrogen and a Unified Concept of Photosynthesis
TLDR
Photoproduction of Hydrogen, Photofixation of Nitrogen and a Unified Concept of Photosynthesis are presented and a new approach to photolysis is proposed.
Crystallization of a Photosynthetic Reductase from a Green Plant
TLDR
A method for crystallizing the protein now known as photosynthetic triphosphopyridine nucleotide reductase, formerly known as the methæmoglobin reducing factor for chloroplasts, is described.
STUDIES ON THE METABOLISM OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC BACTERIA IV
TLDR
The formation of H2 (and C02) in growing cultures of RhodospiriUum rubrum (Athiorhodaceae) is described andHydrogen is produced by this organisn during growth on certain oxidized substrates in synthetic or semi- semi-synthetic substrates.
FERMENTATIVE AND PHOTOCHEMICAL PRODUCTION OF HYDROGEN IN ALGAE
TLDR
The results obtained allow for a more correct explanation of the anaerobic induction period previously described for Scenedesmus and similar algae as well as the possibility of a photochemical evolution of hydrogen.
COPPER ENZYMES IN ISOLATED CHLOROPLASTS. POLYPHENOLOXIDASE IN BETA VULGARIS.
TLDR
Evidence that a copper enzyme, polyphenoloxidase (otherwise known as tyrosinase or catecholase), is localized in the chloroplasts of spinach beet (chard), Beta vu?garis is presented.
A natural factor catalyzing reduction of methaemoglobin by isolated chloroplasts
TLDR
It is concluded that the factor is reduced directly by the illuminated chloroplasts, that oxygen is produced in the process, and that the factors acts in the sense of a catalyst for the reduction of methaemoglobin in the illuminated system.
HYDROGENASE OF CLOSTRIDIUM BUTYLICUM
TLDR
The cell free hydrogenases of Clostridium butylicum and Micrococcus aerogenes are incapable of reducing commonly used two-electron dye acceptors such as methylene blue at appreciable rates in the presence of molecular hydrogen, while the crude and partially purified enzyme from numerous other sources reduces such dyes readily.
Barbiturates and oxidative phosphorylation.
TLDR
Although the supporting evidence for the uncoupling theory is not conclusive, Brody & Bain (1954) have nevertheless demonstrated a lowering of the phosphorylation quotient (P/O ratio).
