Pour optimiser l’efficacite photosynthetique, les organismes de la lignee verte regulent la distribution de l’excitation lumineuse entre les deux photosystemes grace aux transitions d’etat. Par unExpand
Incommensurability and theory comparison in experimental biology
Incommensurability of scientific theories, as conceived by Thomas Kuhnand Paul Feyerabend, is thought to be a major or even insurmountable obstacletothe empirical comparison of these theories. IExpand
Successful Theory Development in Biology : A Consideration of the Theories of Oxidative Phosphorylation Proposed by
The process of oxidative phosphorylation involves the synthesis of ATP by a membrane-bound ATPase coupled through an energy transfer mechanism to the transport of electrons from oxidation ofExpand
Recent developments in mitochondrial medicine (Part 1)
This review will discuss and follow several lines of mitochondrial research from their early beginnings up to the present and hope to be able to convince the reader of what was expressed about a decade ago, that the future of medicine will come through mitochondria. Expand
Introduction of protonic potential of Brønsted−Lowry acids and bases to the quantification of the energy of proton translocation and elucidation of oxidative phosphorylation
Abstract ATP synthesis in mitochondria is driven by the pH gradient between lipid membranes, and a proton-motive force (PMF) forms along the respiratory electron-transport chain. The reasons forExpand

It is shown that the chemiosmotic theory was beset with a large number of major shortcomings ever since the time when it was first proposed in the 1960s and has been rectified by a quantitative, unified molecular-level theory that leads to a deeper and far more accurate understanding of biological energy coupling and ATP synthesis.

2020: murburn concept heralds a new era in cellular bioenergetics
It is deemed opportune to make a clarion call for a jettisoning of the superseded terminologies (or keywords) and concepts routinely used by researchers in this field. Expand
Mitochondrial bioenergetics and redox dysfunctions in hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerosis.
Basic mitochondrial bioenergetics concepts showing that mitochondria are critical regulators of cell life and death are summarized and the potential mitochondrial-targeted therapeutic strategies that are relevant for atherosclerosis are highlighted. Expand
