Abstract:Z-scheme is a spatio-temporally demarcated, sequential/serial and vitally deterministic purview of ‘electron transport chain’, purportedly explaining the light reaction of oxygenic photosynthesis. Herein, first, we summarize the salient components of Z-scheme: Kok-Joliot cycle, P680 cycle, Q-cycle, plastocyanin relay, P700 cycle, ferredoxin relay and finally, NADPH synthesis by the flavin reductase. Then, a skeptic inquiry into the functioning of the component cycles and their integral functionality is carried…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
