Greetings netters 
 Does anyone know, in cyanobacteria, how many ATP 
 molecules are being produced for every O2 molecule being 
 produced in PSII? I know the theoretical numbers (e.g. 4H+/ 
 ATP, 12H+/O2), but wont the actual numbers divert by the 
 use of the PMF for other things and by the PSI:PSII high ratio 
 in cyanobacteria? A reference would be highly appreciated as 
 Thanks Yoram
