Although ideas about the molecular mechanisms of the proton pumps have evolved considerably since then, his concept of 'coupling through proton circuits' remains remarkably prescient, and has provided the inspiration for the research careers of this author and many others. This review is a personal account of how the proton circuit has been followed from the little… CONTINUE READING
