Bioenergetics - Energy Conservation and Conversion
Edited by Schäfer, Günter; Penefsky, Harvey
The present book addresses fundamental questions of biological energy transformation and conservation,
with a focus on those processes which can now be understood on a structural basis.
Hardcover 312 pp ISBN 9783540786214
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.
Written for: Cell biologists, biochemists, plant physiologists
