The fourth edition of Bioenergetics presents a clear and up-to-date explanation of chemiosmotic theory, covering mitochondria, bacteria, and chloroplasts. The publication takes account of the many newly determined structures, such as ATP synthase and the two photosystems of photosynthesis, that provide molecular insight into chemiosmotic energy transduction. Written for students and researchers alike, Bioenergetics is the most well-known, current and respected text on chemiosmotic theory and membrane bioenergetics available.

The book's three main sections cover:

  • The fundamentals of bioenergetics, ion transport pathways, thermodynamics and the basis of the proton circuit
  • The structures and mechanisms of the protein complexes of the electron transport chains in mitochondria, bacteria and photosynthetic systems, the ATP synthase and transport proteins
  • The application of these structures and principles to physiology and pathophysiology

This edition includes new color figures of protein structures and many newly drawn illustrations to help the reader to grasp the fundamental insights. Every chapter has been extensively revised and updated, and a new chapter on the bioenergetics of mitochondria in the intact cell satisfies the rapidly growing interest in this topic.

  • Every chapter has been extensively revised
  • Includes full-color illustrations, including new protein structure images
  • Features accompanying website with figures from the text
