A model for the topology of the chloroplast thylakoid membrane

Arvidsson, Per-Ola and Sundby, Cecilia (1999) In Australian Journal of Plant Physiology 26(7). p.687-694
Abstract
A model for the topological organization of the chloroplast thylakoid membrane is presented. A series of illustrations is provided, which outline a suggested 3-dimensional structure in cross-section and in full shape, which accounts both for the folding of one continuous membrane into multiple grana stacks as seen in cross-sectional electron micrographs and for the rapid reversible unfolding (destacking) of the grana stacks into lamellar sheets.
