Answers fundamental questions in bioenergetic research
Lots of examples
Suitable for specialists as well as novices in the field
The present book addresses fundamental questions of biological energy transformation and conservation, with a focus on those processes which can now be understood on a structural basis.
Current knowledge of selected examples of the biological energy conservation machinery such as cellular oxygen respiration, light-driven energy converters, and fermentation is reviewed. The machinery is highly variable, particularly that within microorganisms, but all of these devices universally rely on one unique underlying physico-chemical principle.
The book is a rich source for specialists interested in recent developments in bioenergetics research and novices in the field alike.
