Functional Studies on the Reaction Pattern of the H+-ATP-Synthase in Spinach Chloroplasts
Conformational changes in CFo induced by H+ translocation are strictly coupled to those in CF1 which switch over between loose and tight nucleotide binding (indirect coupling mechanism).
Conversion between ADP + Pj and ATP + H20 occurs spontaneously in the tightly bound state.
Regulation processes are integral constituents of the catalytic reaction cycle.
The H+/ATP coupling ratio is four.
