Dynamic flexibility in the structure and function of photosystem II in higher plant Thylakoid membranes: the grana enigma

Anderson, Jan; Chow, Wah S (Fred); De Las Rivas, Javier


Grana are not essential for photosynthesis, yet they are ubiquitous in higher plants and in the recently evolved Charaphyta algae; hence grana role and its need is still an intriguing enigma. This article discusses how the grana provide integrated and multifaceted functional advantages, by facilitating mechanisms that fine-tune the dynamics of the photosynthetic apparatus, with particular implications for photosystem II (PSII). This dynamic flexibility of photosynthetic membranes is...[Show more]
