Proposed merge[edit]

I'm suggesting to merge granum into this page. I'm not sure how much there would be to say about grana besides the fact that they are stacks of thylakoids. - tameeria 14:27, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Do it. If we have more to say later we can split the article. Its much better to have these related topics on the same page. David D. (Talk) 16:20, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Found another one: Thylakoid lumen probably should also be merged here. - tameeria 17:41, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Agreed, both of them are tiny articles and more like definitions. David D. (Talk) 18:11, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
I've done the merge. The article might still require a bit of cleaning up for duplicated statements etc. - tameeria 18:58, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

You're doing a great job here Tameeria. One thing missing, that might be interesting, is a comparison with mitochondria in the Chemiosmosis section. Mitochondria only have a 10 fold pH gradient across their inner membrane but have a significant charge across the membrane. Part of the reason the pH difference across the thylakoid is so large is due to the fact it has no charge gradient. In chloroplasts for the PMF to be large enough for the synthesis of ATP the potential energy has to come from the chemical gradient of protons alone. David D. (Talk) 14:52, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

Satiety research with thykaloids in spinach extract[edit]

Lund University researchers have determined from human trials that thykaloids in spinach extract "decrease hedonic hunger with up to 95 percent and increase weight loss by 43 percent."[1]
