Bioenergetics Energy Conservation and Conversion
By Günter Schäfer and Harvey S. Penefsky
Bioenergetics Energy Conservation and Conversion PDF addresses fundamental questions of biological energy transformation and conservation, with a focus on those processes which can now be understood on a structural basis.
Current knowledge of selected examples of the biological energy conservation machinery such as cellular oxygen respiration, light-driven energy converters, and fermentation is reviewed. The machinery is highly variable, particularly that within microorganisms, but all of these devices universally rely on one unique underlying physico-chemical principle.
The book is a rich source for specialists interested in recent developments in bioenergetics research and novices in the field alike.
