How acidic is the lumen?

Proton motive force (pmf), established across the thylakoid membrane by photosynthetic electron transfer, functions both to drive the synthesis of ATP and initiate processes that down-regulate photosynthesis. At the same time, excessively low lumen pH can lead to the destruction of some lumenal components and sensitization of the photosynthetic apparatus to photoinhibition. Therefore, in order to understand the energy budget of photosynthesis, its regulation and responses to environmental… CONTINUE READING
