A quantitative model of the domain structure of the photosynthetic membrane

Albertsson, Per-Åke LU (2001) In Trends in Plant Science 6(8). p.349-358
Abstract
A model is presented that gives a quantitative picture of the distribution of the photosynthetic components in the photosynthetic membrane of higher plants. A salient feature of the model is that most of the pigments are located in the grana where photosystem I and II carry out linear electron transport, whereas the stroma lamellae, which harbour <20% of the pigments, carry out photosystem-I-mediated cyclic electron transport. This arrangement derives from the observation that more pigments are associated with photosystem I, which therefore captures more quanta than photosystem II. The excess pigments associated with photosystem I are thought to be located in the stroma lamellae.
