Bacterial Energetics: A Treatise on Structure and Function: by I. C. Funsalus,John R. Sokatch,L. Nicholas Ornston,Terry

By I. C. Funsalus,John R. Sokatch,L. Nicholas Ornston,Terry Krulwich

Bacterial Energetics offers with bacterial energetics and the molecular foundation of the way ions circulate among and inside of energy-transducing molecules. issues coated diversity from respiration-driven proton pumps and first sodium pumps to light-driven fundamental ionic pumps, bacterial shipping ATPases, and bacterial photosynthesis. Sodium-coupled cotransport and ion-exchange platforms in prokaryotes also are thought of.
This quantity is produced from 17 chapters and starts with an research of the pumps and techniques that determine electrochemical ion gradients throughout bacterial membranes, by way of a dialogue at the significant sorts of bioenergetic paintings that make the most of those gradients. The energetics of periplasmic delivery platforms, chemolithotrophs, methanogens, and protein insertion and translocation into or throughout membranes also are tested, in addition to bioenergetics in severe environments equivalent to high-pressure and high-temperature environments; vigorous difficulties of bacterial fermentations; energetics of bacterial motility; and energetics of the bacterial phosphotransferase approach in sugar delivery and the rules of carbon metabolism.
This booklet could be of curiosity to molecular biologists and biochemists.
