Is there any relation between cyclic,non-cyclic and chemiosmotic hypothesis ??? does it mean that chemiosmotic hypothesis consist of cyclic and non cyclic phosphorylation ??? plz explain yes or no .. what happens to the protons of photolysis of water … do they travel along with the electrons through the various cytochromes ???

Hi Navdeep,
Thank you for asking

Both the cyclic and non-cyclic events of electron transport pathways are independent of each other. But, non-cyclic event is related with chemiosmotic hypothesis.

Now your second question and this will defince the topic much in details.
Photolysis of water occurs only during non-cyclic event. The electrons are accepted by PSII (as believed) and the H+(protons) temporarily, which later takes part in chemiosmotic hypothesis (which explanation of Photophosphorylation).

Please let me know if further explanation needed.

Hope the answer of the question
