Thylakoid membrane landscape in the sixties: a tribute to Andrew Benson

Anderson, Jan

Description

Prior to the 1960s, the model for the molecular structure of cell membranes consisted of a lipid bilayer held in place by a thin film of electrostatically-associated protein stretched over the bilayer surface: (the Danielli-Davson-Robertson "unit membrane" model). Andrew Benson, an expert in the lipids of chloroplast thylakoid membranes, questioned the relevance of the unit membrane model for biological membranes, especially for thylakoid membranes, instead of emphasizing evidence in favour of...[Show more]
