Research Description

Photosynthetic membranes of plants and photosynthetic algae contain a protein machinery to convert sunlight in chemical energy and regulate this process in changing environmental conditions via interplay between lipid, protein and pigment molecular constituents. Here we studied protein and lipid dynamics in intact photosynthetic thylakoid membranes using in-situ solid-state NMR.
