Bioenergetics 2 aims to clarify topics such as the thermodynamics of bioenergetic processes and the stoichiometries of energy coupling reactions. The book discusses chemiosmotic energy transduction; ion transport across energy-conserving membranes; and quantitative bioenergenetics as the measurement of driving forces. The text also describes the chemiosmotic proton circuit; the respiratory chain; the photosynthetic generators of protonmotive force; and the ATP synthase. The secondary transport of products across the membrane, as well as the structures of the bacterial photosynthetic reaction center and bacteriorhodopsin are also considered. Biochemists will find the book invaluable.

This new edition has been substantially rewritten and updated, and includes colour plates and cartoons to aid understanding. The book contains a comprehensive list of the most relevant reviews on each area of bioenergetics and, in addition, the methodology of bioenergetic experimentation is discussed in detail.From the Back Cover:
Extensively revised, the new edition of this highly successful book takes into account the many newly determined protein structures, such as ATP synthase and the two photosystems of photosynthesis, that provide molecular insight into chemiosmotic energy transduction, as well as reviewing the explosive advances in 'mitochondria physiology'-the role of the mitochondria in the life and death of the cell.
Covering mitochondria, bacteria and chloroplasts, Bioenergetics 3 provides a clear and comprehensive account of chemiosmotic theory. The figures have been carefully designed to be memorable and convey the key functional and mechanistic information.
* Chapter on the study of bioenergetics of mitochondria in the intact cell
* Appendix listing protein structure resources
* Additional colour plates of protein structures
* Many newly drawn illustrations
Written for students and researchers alike, this book has become the standard textbook on chemiosmotic theory and membrane bioenergetics. Bioenergetics 3 will be essential reading for undergraduates, graduate and postgraduate students working in biochemistry, molecular biology and the biological sciences, and established researchers who require an overview of the latest advances in this dynamic field.
