Photosynthesis: A New Step in Oxygen Evolution

Abstract

The thylakoid membranes of plant chloroplasts use sunlight to trigger a series of electron transfer reactions coupled to proton translocation. The resulting proton gradient is used to generate ATP, and under some circumstances electron flow produces NADPH; these molecules are then used for the fixation of carbon and the production of biomass. Three membrane… (More)
