The distribution of photosystem (PS) II complexes in stacked grana thylakoids derived from electron microscopic images of freeze-fractured chloroplasts are examined for the first time using mathematical methods. These characterize the particle distribution in terms of a nearest neighbor distribution function and a pair correlation function. The data were compared with purely random distributions calculated by a Monte Carlo simulation. The analysis reveals that the PSII distribution in grana… CONTINUE READING
