The Biochemistry of Plants: A Comprehensive Treatise, Volume 10: Photosynthesis provides information pertinent to the biochemistry of photosynthesis. This book discusses the advances in the field of photosynthesis and emphasizes that not only certain synthetic bacteria and microalgae but also other aquatic phototrophs possess mechanisms for concentrating CO2 or bicarbonate in their cells. Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the ways of minimizing the wasteful oxygenase reaction catalyzed by the enzyme. This text then examines the molecular basis underlying the structure of the chloroplast thylakoid membrane and its biogenesis during the maturation of the chloroplast. Other chapters consider the dynamics of the thylakoid membrane, including the role of protein phosphorylation and the lateral distribution of electrical charge and protein components. This book discusses as well the molecular processes governing the development of the organelle. This book is a valuable resource for plant biochemists, neurobiochemists, molecular biologists, senior graduate students, and research workers.
