Photosynthesis Problem Set 1

Problem 2: Energy source for ATP formation

The specific energy source for the reaction ADP + phosphate ATP by the enzyme ATP synthetase (CF1 Coupling Factor) in thylakoid membranes is:
A movement of electrons between photosystem II and photosystem I.

B oxidation of water

C oxidation of NADPH

D absorption of photons by chloroplast pigments

E higher concentration of H+ inside versus outside the thylakoid membranes
