There are two separate aspects to the energetic control over the initiation of ATP formation by chloroplast thylakoid membranes: (i) the free energy requirement for the phosphorylation of ADP and (ii) the energy-dependent transformation of the coupling factor into a catalytically active state. Using flash excitation, we have been able to distinguish between limitations imposed on ATP formation by the energetics of coupling factor activation from limitations imposed by the thermodynamics of ADP… CONTINUE READING
