    how are they different? can u get me a diagram? and these pumps are big membrane proteins, dont think it would be that easy to just move it here, even if u add the genes from one to the other. If u really want to increase energy yield of a plant, try to think of way to increase the carbon dioxide capturing power of the Rubisco protein. Thats more of what everyone wants.
