The chloroplast adenosine triphosphate (ATP) synthase is located in the thylakoid membrane and synthesizes ATP from adenosine diphosphate and inorganic phosphate at the expense of the electrochemical proton gradient formed by light-dependent electron flow. The structure, activities, and mechanism of the chloroplast ATP synthase are discussed. Emphasis is given to the inherent structural asymmetry of the ATP synthase and to the implication of this asymmetry to the mechanism of ATP synthesis and… CONTINUE READING
