  • question_answer 33)
      ATPase enzyme consists of two parts. What are those parts? How are they arranged in the thylakoid membrane? Conformational change occur in which part of the enzyme?


                      ATP synthase enzyme has two parts (a) -head piece is a peripheral membrane protein complex and contain the site for synthesis of ATP from ADP +pi (inorganic phosphate). (b) -integral membrane protein complex that forms the channel through which proton cross the inner membrane. The. arrangment of  and  in thylakoid membrane is as follows -portion is present within the thylakoid membrane. -portion of ATP synthase enzyme is present in the stroma if chloroplast;: The conformational change occurs in f) portion of ATP synthase thus, facilitaling the ATP synthesis.
