The growth of purple bacteria is supported either by a photosynthetic, light-dependent electron transfer system or by a respiratory electron transfer system. Both systems are localized in both a cytoplasmic and an intracytoplasmic membrane system. Formation of the functional complexes is regulated by the oxygen partial pressure and light intensity. The organization and the multistep process of assembly of their components will be described in this review. Most details about the assembly of the… CONTINUE READING
