proton-transporting ATP synthase complex, coupling factor F(o)
The role of NADPH in oxygen-producing photosynthesis is to ____.
The Light Reaction
Pigments in photosystem II absorb light. The light excites electrons, energizing
them. The high-energy electrons move to photosystem I and get re-energized. The electrons’ energy is harvested to pump H+ ions from the stroma into the thylakoids. NADP+ picks up some of the H+ and electrons to become NADPH. The leftover H+ diffuse back out to the stroma, passing through ATP synthase. ATP synthase produces ATP.
What role does chemiosmosis play in photosynthesis?
Transmembrane ATPases are membrane-bound enzyme complexes/ion transporters that use ATP hydrolysis to drive the transport of protons across a membrane. Some transmembrane ATPases also work in reverse, harnessing the energy from a proton gradient, using the flux of ions across the membrane via the ATPase proton channel to drive the synthesis of ATP.
