The intensification of absorbance changes in leaves by light-dispersion : Differences between high-light and low-light leaves.

In dispersive samples, like leaves, the absorbance of pigments is intensified. The intensification is due to a longer optical path through the dispers...

Role of the xanthophyll cycle in photoprotection elucidated by measurements of light-induced absorbance changes, fluorescence and photosynthesis in leaves of Hedera canariensis.
The role of the xanthophyll cycle in regulating the energy flow to the PS II reaction centers and therefore in photoprotection was studied by measurements of light-induced absorbance changes, Chl fluorescence, and photosynthetic O2 evolution in sun a

Differences between Fragaria clones by fourth derivative room temperature spectroscopy of intact leaves.
Clones of Fragaria were characterized by the attenuance (absorption) spectra of their photosynthetic apparatus. This method uses fourth derivative analysis of spectra of intact lamina of detached leaves at room temperature (20-25 C). Twenty-one diffe

Glycerolipid synthesis in Avena leaves during greening of etiolated seedlings I. Lipid changes in leaves.
Etiolated seedlings of Avena sativa L. were illuminated under fluorescent light of 1,500 lux at 25°C and the lipid changes in their first leaves and isolated plastids were followed during 24 hr of greening. Lipid changes were divided into a degradati

Polysomal changes in developing wheat leaves.
When leaf sections of 7-day old dark grown wheat leaves were incubated in white light, they unrolled and greened. Gibberellic acid was able to replace the light requirement and abscisic acid (ABA) inhibited the response to light. The percentage of ri

Comparison of effects of air pollutants (SO2, O 3, NO 2) on intact leaves by measurements of chlorophyll fluorescence and P700 absorbance changes.
The immediate effects of short exposures to high concentrations of different air pollutants (20 min SO2, 2 h O3, and 4 h NO2, 5 ppm each) on chlorophyll fluorescence and P700 absorbance changes at 830 nm of intact spinach leaves were investigated. Th

Measuring surface potential changes on leaves.
We provide here a detailed protocol for studying the changes in electrical surface potential of leaves. This method has been developed over the years by plant physiologists and is currently used in different variants in many laboratories. The protoco

The relationship between CO2 assimilation and electron transport in leaves.
The inter-relationships between the quantum efficiencies of photosystems I (φI) and II (φII) and the quantum yield of CO2 fixation % MathType!MTEF!2!1!+-% feaafiart1ev1aaatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbuLwBLn% hiov2DGi1BTfMBaeXatLxBI9gBaerbd9wDYLwzY

Changes in endogenous growth regulators in nasturtium leaves during senescence.
By use of lettuce-hypocotyl and wheat-coleoptile bioassay, the presence of both gibberellin (GA)-like and abscisic-acid(ABA)-like components in acidic ethyl-acetate extracts of fully expanded nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) leaves has been shown. Durin

Chloroplast movements in leaves: Influence on chlorophyll fluorescence and measurements of light-induced absorbance changes related to ΔpH and zeaxanthin formation.
Light-induced chloroplast movements were found to cause changes in chlorophyll fluorescence emission, closely matching those in leaf absorptance, both in terms of the kinetics and the maximum extent of the changes observed in different species. The r

Metabolomics differences between silkworms (Bombyx mori) reared on fresh mulberry (Morus) leaves or artificial diets.
Silkworms (Bombyx mori) reared on artificial diets have great potential applications in sericulture. However, the mechanisms underlying the enhancement of metabolic utilization by altering silkworm nutrition are unclear. The aim of this study was to
