which occurs in photosynthetic bacteria.
It appears to stimulate the photosynthesis of host bacteria.
Method to Transport Synthesized Glucose
to the Rest of the Body Two Photosynthetic Pathways However, in the anoxygenic pathways of photosynthesis, water is not the reducing agent, meaning oxygen is not formed.
The basic equation of photosynthesis is deceptively simple.
Small body size of Elysia slug does not require complex system for transport of synthesized glucose from the membrane to the rest of the body.
Have the ability to fold wing-like structures on to of its back or unroll them to increase area available to absorb light for photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis in Other Anoxygenic Photosynthetic Bacteria
One must appreciate the fact that the purple non-sulfur bacteria would probably be overrun (crowded out) by various respiring chemotrophs from the sample if our enrichments and plates were incubated under aerobic conditions. Aerobically, the photosynthetic pigments would not be as visible (if at all), and picking likely colonies of these organisms would be difficult or impossible. Likewise, they would probably be overrun by fermenting chemotrophs if our enrichments and plates were incubated under anaerobic conditions with a "popular" carbon source such as glucose in the medium.
Pigments in Photosynthetic Bacteria
THE ABOVE RIGHT PHOTO shows a plate streaked from an enrichment and then incubated anaerobically in the light. Note the pigmented colonies of purple non-sulfur photosynthetic bacteria.

Rhodopseudomonas acidophila Purpose of Light Harvesting Complexes: LH1 The light harvesting complex 1 is used as the primary light harvesting proteins or the antenna system for absorption in the bacteria.
The complexes are able to collect more light than the photosynthetic reaction center would be able to alone.
Energy from LH1 is transferred to the reaction center to begin electron transport .
Eventually this drives ATP to convert solar energy to chemical energy in the bacterial cell.
These light harvesting complexes are apart of a larger photo system function unit that plants and photosynthetic bacteria contain.
