Knox and Parson have objected to our previous conclusion on possible negative entropy production during primary photochemistry, i.e., from photon absorption to primary charge separation, by considering a pigment system in which primary photochemistry is not specifically considered. This approach...
Recent time-resolved optical and electrometric experiments have provided a sequence of events for the proton-translocating mechanism of cytochrome c oxidase. These data also set limits for the mechanistic, kinetic, and thermodynamic parameters of the proton pump, which are analysed here in some...
In yeast, Ca 2+ and long chain alkylguanidines interact with mitochondria modulating the opening of the yeast mitochondrial unspecific channel. Mammalians possess a similar structure, the mitochondrial permeability transition pore. The composition of these pores is under debate. Among other...
The pgr5 mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana has been described as being deficient in cyclic electron flow around photosystem I, however, the precise role of the PGR5 protein remains unknown. To address this issue, photosynthetic electron transport was examined in intact leaves of pgr5 and wild type...
Two forms of the equation for expression of the rate constant for electron transfer through a Marcus-type treatment are discussed. In the first (exergonic) form, the Arrhenius exponential term was replaced by its classical Marcus term; in the second (endergonic) form, the forward rate constant...
An assertion that the primary photochemistry of photosynthesis can violate the Second Law of thermodynamics in certain efficient systems has been put forward by Jennings et al., who maintain their position strongly despite an argument to the contrary by Lavergne. We identify a specific omission...
Endogenous probes of light-induced transthylakoid proton motive force ( pmf ), membrane potential (Δ ψ ) and ΔpH were used in vivo to assess in Arabidopsis the lumen pH responses of regulatory components of photosynthesis. The accumulation of zeaxanthin and protonation of PsbS were found to...
The preceding paper (R.C. Jennings, E. Belgio, A.P. Casazza, F.M. Garlaschi, G. Zucchelli, Entropy consumption in primary photosynthesis, Biochim. Biophys. Acta (in press)) is criticized on several grounds.
One can but admire the intricate way in which biomolecular structures are formed and cooperate to allow proper cellular function. A prominent example of such intricacy is the assembly of the five inner membrane embedded enzymatic complexes of the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS)...
