Contents Basic principles of photosynthetic energy storage -- Photosynthetic organisms and organelles -- History and early development of photosynthesis -- Photosynthetic pigments : structure and spectroscopy -- Antenna complexes and energy transfer processes -- Reaction center complexes -- Electron transfer pathways and components -- Chemiosmotic coupling and ATP synthesis -- Carbon metabolism -- Genetics, assembly and regulation of photosynthesic systems -- Origin and evolution of photosynthesis
Summary Molecular mechanisms of photosynthesis stands as an ideal introduction to this subject. Robert Blankenship, a leading authority in photosynthesis research, offers a modern approach to photosynthesis in this accessible and well-illustrated text. The book provides a concise overview of the basic principles of energy storage and the history of the field, then progresses into more advanced topics such as electron transfer pathways, kinetics, genetic manipulations, and evolution. Throughout, Blankenship includes an interdisciplinary emphasis that makes this book appealing across fields
