The complex structure of higher plant chloroplasts has fascinated researchers for many years. Although the spatial relationship between granum and stroma thylakoids has been known for more than 20 years, most textbooks and research papers continue to include erroneous 3D models and simplified schemes.
Here Biochemistry output present a simple computer model, based on electron micrographs from serial section of granum—stroma assemblies, showing the striking 3D structure of the stroma membrane wound around the granum. This model also provides an insight into some previously unknown functions of this intriguing multilamellar membrane system.
However, many areas, such as self-assembly, structural flexibility and evolutionary niche, still remain to be explored. The model represents the structural relationship between thylakoid membrane features and the sizes of proteins.
The sizes and contours of the Deg and FtsH proteases were adapted from [ 5051 ]. The RMM of a protein is proportional to its volume. PC was selected as a reference protein.
Its RMM is For the calculations, a mean diameter of 3. Online version in colour. Miller shows the inner surface of a thylakoid membrane. Each particle may represent one photosystem II complex. In the functioning chloroplast, these particles may not be as highly ordered as seen here.
Such larger particulates are called photosynthetic units II or photo system IIoften they are called Quantasomes. In its latest form, the model suggests a bipartite structure consisting of a cylindrical granum body, made of discs piled on top of each other, around which the stroma lamellae are wound as right-handed helices.
Thus it is a reasonable approximation to consider the lipid bilayer as a flat, two-dimensional surface. Photosystem II granules associated with photosystem I are mostly found in stacked thylakoid membranes, but stromal lamellae contain mostly Photosystem I.
Such spatial segregation is called spatial separation of photosystems is called lateral segregation. And the particles carry negative charges and they can move in the membranes.
The particles in lipid membrane cluster and segregate frequently. Some of them are photo system I structural units. The others are little bigger particles. In fact, a part of this complex of enzymes is buried in the membrane. In addition, there are some more protein complexes like ferredoxin reducing protein, NADP reductases and other electron transporting protein complexes within the thylakoid membranes.
Most of these components are vectorially organized and moreover the above said particles show lateral movement within the dynamic fluid. The thylakoid membranous sac is filled with a fluid which is mostly acidic when chloroplasts are active. The pigment-protein complexes within the membrane interact via Coulomb interactions screened in the presence of cationsvan der Waals VDW forces, dipole-dipole interactions, and lipid-induced protein-protein attraction.
The intergranal lamellae contain mostly PSI system and its associated components. The near absence of large PS II particles is a distinct feature of the stromal lamellae or intergranal lamellae. The presence of granular structures was first observed by Park and his associated members and such structures were then called as Quantasomes.
But granal lamellae contain mostly PS II system. At the lateral ends of granal lamellae one finds both. And stromal lamellae are found coiled around granal structures.Learn and research science, chemistry, biology, physics, math, astronomy, electronics, and much more.

The highly co-ordinated output of the hypothalamic biological clock not only controls the daily rhythm in sleep–wake (or feeding–fasting) behaviour, but also exerts a direct control over many aspects of hormone release and energy metabolism.
In other words, for each reaction, the output follows the equilibrium input-output relation with probability 1-p, and with probability p, the output is zero.
From the standard equilibrium in Eq. (7), we simplify the notation by using y ≡ A ∗ for output, and scale the input such that x = S / m.
The Gross Physiology of the Cardiovascular System │ 1 Introduction At a time when knowledge about microvascular physiology and subcellular myocardial and vascular biochemistry has accumulated at such a tremendous rate, I. Biochemistry is the study of the chemical substances and vital processes occurring in living organisms. Biochemists focus heavily on the role, function, and structure of biomolecules. The study of the chemistry behind biological processes and the synthesis of biologically active molecules are . A year-old, alcoholic male presents with a swollen face, distended abdomen, and an enlarged fatty liver. Fatty acids react with glycerolP to form triglycerides, which accumulate to cause fatty liver.
