Abstract

1. The degree of the light-dependent Mg2+ efflux across the thylakoid membrane is a function of pH. There is a considerable efflux at pH 7.2 which decreases to a negligible amount at pH 8.6. This conclusion is derived from studies using the divalent cation-specific ionophore A23187. The ionophore is active as an uncoupler at pH 7.2 even in the absence of… (More)
