The localisation of 2-carboxy-D-arabinitol 1-phosphate and inhibition of Rubisco in leaves of Phaseolus vulgaris L. (1/2508)

A recent controversial report suggests that the nocturnal inhibitor of Rubisco, 2-carboxy-D-arabinitol 1-phosphate (CAIP), does not bind to Rubisco in vivo and therefore that CA1P has no physiological relevance to photosynthetic regulation. It is now proved that a direct rapid assay can be used to distinguish between Rubisco-bound and free CA1P, as postulated in the controversial report. Application of this direct assay demonstrates that CA1P is bound to Rubisco in vivo in dark-adapted leaves. Furthermore, CA1P is shown to be in the chloroplasts of mesophyll cells. Thus, CA1P does play a physiological role in the regulation of Rubisco.  (+info)

Mg-chelatase of tobacco: the role of the subunit CHL D in the chelation step of protoporphyrin IX. (2/2508)

The Mg-chelation is found to be a prerequisite to direct protoporphyrin IX into the chlorophyll (Chl)-synthesizing branch of the tetrapyrrol pathway. The ATP-dependent insertion of magnesium into protoporphyrin IX is catalyzed by the enzyme Mg-chelatase, which consists of three protein subunits (CHL D, CHL I, and CHL H). We have chosen the Mg-chelatase from tobacco to obtain more information about the mode of molecular action of this complex enzyme by elucidating the interactions in vitro and in vivo between the central subunit CHL D and subunits CHL I and CHL H. We dissected CHL D in defined peptide fragments and assayed for the essential part of CHL D for protein-protein interaction and enzyme activity. Surprisingly, only a small part of CHL D, i.e., 110 aa, was required for interaction with the partner subunits and maintenance of the enzyme activity. In addition, it could be demonstrated that CHL D is capable of forming homodimers. Moreover, it interacted with both CHL I and CHL H. Our data led to the outline of a two-step model based on the cooperation of the subunits for the chelation process.  (+info)

Structural analysis of DNA-chlorophyll complexes by Fourier transform infrared difference spectroscopy. (3/2508)

Porphyrins and metalloporphyrins are strong DNA binders. Some of these compounds have been used for radiation sensitization therapy of cancer and are targeted to interact with cellular DNA. This study was designed to examine the interaction of calf thymus DNA with chlorophyll a (CHL) in aqueous solution at physiological pH with CHL/DNA(phosphate) ratios (r) of 1/160, 1/80, 1/40, 1/20, 1/10, and 1/5. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) difference spectroscopy was used to characterize the nature of DNA-pigment interactions and to establish correlations between spectral changes and the CHL binding mode, binding constant, sequence selectivity, DNA secondary structure, and structural variations of DNA-CHL complexes in aqueous solution. Spectroscopic results showed that CHL is an external DNA binder with no affinity for DNA intercalation. At low pigment concentration (r = 1/160, 1/80, and 1/40), there are two major binding sites for CHL on DNA duplex: 1) Mg-PO2 and 2) Mg-N7 (guanine) with an overall binding constant of K = 1.13 x 10(4) M-1. The pigment distributions are 60% with the backbone PO2 group and 20% with the G-C base pairs. The chlorophyll interaction is associated with a major reduction of B-DNA structure in favor of A-DNA. At high chlorophyll content (r = 1/10), helix opening occurs, with major spectral alterations of the G-C and A-T bases. At high chlorophyll concentration (1/5), pigment aggregation is observed, which does not favor CHL-DNA complexation.  (+info)

Quenching of chlorophyll fluorescence by triplets in solubilized light-harvesting complex II (LHCII). (4/2508)

The quenching of chlorophyll fluorescence by triplets in solubilized trimeric light harvesting complexes was analyzed by comparative pump-probe experiments that monitor with weak 2-ns probe pulses the fluorescence yield and changes of optical density, DeltaOD, induced by 2-ns pump pulses. By using a special array for the measurement of the probe fluorescence (Schodel R., F. Hillman, T. Schrotter, K.-D. Irrgang, J. Voight, and G. Biophys. J. 71:3370-3380) the emission caused by the pump pulses could be drastically reduced so that even at highest pump pulse intensities, IP, no significant interference with the signal due to the probe pulse was observed. The data obtained reveal: a) at a fixed time delay of 50 ns between pump and probe pulse the fluorescence yield of the latter drastically decreased with increasing IP, b) the recovery of the fluorescence yield in the microseconds time domain exhibits kinetics which are dependent on IP, c) DeltaOD at 507 nm induced by the pump pulse and monitored by the probe pulse with a delay of 50 ns (reflecting carotenoid triplets) increases with IP without reaching a saturation level at highest IP values, d) an analogous feature is observed for the bleaching at 675 nm but it becomes significant only at very high IP values, e) the relaxation of DeltaOD at 507 nm occurs via a monophasic kinetics at all IP values whereas DeltaOD at 675 nm measured under the same conditions is characterized by a biphasic kinetics with tau values of about 1 microseconds and 7-9 microseconds. The latter corresponds with the monoexponential decay kinetics of DeltaOD at 507 nm. Based on a Stern-Volmer plot, the time-dependent fluorescence quenching is compared with the relaxation kinetics of triplets. It is shown that the fluorescence data can be consistently described by a quenching due to triplets.  (+info)

Electronic spectra of PS I mutants: the peripheral subunits do not bind red chlorophylls in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. (5/2508)

Steady-state fluorescence and absorption spectra have been obtained in the Qy spectral region (690-780 nm and 600-750 nm, respectively) for several subunit-deficient photosystem I mutants from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. The 77 K fluorescence spectra of the wild-type and subunit-deficient mutant photosystem I particles are all very similar, peaking at approximately 720 nm with essentially the same excitation spectrum. Because emission from far-red chlorophylls absorbing near 708 nm dominates low-temperature fluorescence in Synechocystis sp., these pigments are not coordinated to any the subunits PsaF, Psa I, PsaJ, PsaK, PsaL, or psaM. The room temperature (wild-type-mutant) absorption difference spectra for trimeric mutants lacking the PsaF/J, PsaK, and PsaM subunits suggest that these mutants are deficient in core antenna chlorophylls (Chls) absorbing near 685, 670, 675, and 700 nm, respectively. The absorption difference spectrum for the PsaF/J/I/L-deficient photosystem I complexes at 5 K reveals considerably more structure than the room-temperature spectrum. The integrated absorbance difference spectra (when normalized to the total PS I Qy spectral area) are comparable to the fractions of Chls bound by the respective (groups of) subunits, according to the 4-A density map of PS I from Synechococcus elongatus. The spectrum of the monomeric PsaL-deficient mutant suggests that this subunit may bind pigments absorbing near 700 nm.  (+info)

Heterologous expression of Arabidopsis phytochrome B in transgenic potato influences photosynthetic performance and tuber development. (6/2508)

Transgenic potato (Solanum tuberosum) plants expressing Arabidopsis phytochrome B were characterized morphologically and physiologically under white light in a greenhouse to explore their potential for improved photosynthesis and higher tuber yields. As expected, overexpression of functional phytochrome B caused pleiotropic effects such as semidwarfism, decreased apical dominance, a higher number of smaller but thicker leaves, and increased pigmentation. Because of increased numbers of chloroplasts in elongated palisade cells, photosynthesis per leaf area and in each individual plant increased. In addition, photosynthesis was less sensitive to photoinactivation under prolonged light stress. The beginning of senescence was not delayed, but deceleration of chlorophyll degradation extended the lifetime of photosynthetically active plants. Both the higher photosynthetic performance and the longer lifespan of the transgenic plants allowed greater biomass production, resulting in extended underground organs with increased tuber yields.  (+info)

Expression of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate oxidase during leaf ontogeny in white clover. (7/2508)

We examined the expression of three distinct 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid oxidase genes during leaf ontogeny in white clover (Trifolium repens). Significant production of ethylene occurs at the apex, in newly initiated leaves, and in senescent leaf tissue. We used a combination of reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and 3'-rapid amplification of cDNA ends to identify three distinct DNA sequences designated TRACO1, TRACO2, and TRACO3, each with homology to 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid oxidase. Southern analysis confirmed that these sequences represent three distinct genes. Northern analysis revealed that TRACO1 is expressed specifically in the apex and TRACO2 is expressed in the apex and in developing and mature green leaves, with maximum expression in developing leaf tissue. The third gene, TRACO3, is expressed in senescent leaf tissue. Antibodies were raised to each gene product expressed in Escherichia coli, and western analysis showed that the TRACO1 antibody recognizes a protein of approximately 205 kD (as determined by gradient sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacylamide gel electrophoresis) that is expressed preferentially in apical tissue. The TRACO2 antibody recognizes a protein of approximately 36.4 kD (as determined by gradient sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacylamide gel electrophoresis) that is expressed in the apex and in developing and mature green leaves, with maximum expression in mature green tissue. No protein recognition by the TRACO3 antibody could be detected in senescent tissue or at any other stage of leaf development.  (+info)

Isolation and characterisation of oxygen evolving thylakoids from the marine prokaryote Prochloron didemni. (8/2508)

The present study describes the first successful attempt to isolate oxygen evolving thylakoids and thylakoid fragments from the marine prokaryote Prochloron didemni, a member of the recently discovered group of prochlorophytes. Oxygen evolving thylakoid membranes and fragments were isolated from seawater suspended cells of Prochloron didemni by passage of the cells through a Yeda press and subsequent differential centrifugation of the broken material. Three fractions were collected at 1000 x g, 5000 x g, and 3000 x g and identified by light microscopy as cells (and their fragments), thylakoids and membrane fragments, respectively. Pigment content, oxygen evolution rate and 77 K fluorescence spectra of these fractions were virtually identical. This finding indicates that the membrane fragments obtained are not enriched in photosystem II. The P680+* reduction kinetics of thylakoid membrane fragments were determined by monitoring flash induced absorption changes at 830 nm and analysing the time course of their decay. The multiphasic relaxation kinetics and their modification by NH2OH were found to be similar to those observed in cyanobacteria and plants. These findings provide an independent line of evidence for the idea of a high conservation of the basic structural and functional pattern of the water oxidising complex in all organisms that perform oxygenic photosynthesis.  (+info)

In this research paper we studied the effect of some thermal treatments on chlorophyll, carotenes and xanthophylls content from spinach and savoy cabbage leaves. Were analysed fresh samples and samples blanched (approx. 98 C for 5 min), boiled (20 min) and frozen after blancing prior (at approx. 18 C for 2 months). The concentrations of chlorophyll and carotenoids were determined spectrophotometrically. Of the two analyzed vegetables, spinach had the highest concentration of chlorophyll (total chlorophyll 515.47 mg/g- for fresh spinach, respectively 289.07 mg/g- for fresh savoy cabbage. The more aggressive thermal treatment, in terms of the reduction of the chlorophyll concentration in both vegetables was boiled, followed by freezing. Blanching resulted in the lowest losses of chlorophylls. After the thermal treatments applied, the most significant losses for both the spinach and savoy cabbage, have been recorded for the chlorophyll b. From experimental data it was observed that spinach is ...

Abstract This study aims to reveal the effects of light on chlorophyll fluorescence and antioxidant indexes of sun-cured tobacco leaves in yellowing period of curing. Tobacco samples under the light treatment and shading treatment (CK) were collected dynamically during yellowing period. Indexes of chlorophyll fluorescence, activities of antioxidant enzymes and contents of chlorophyll, H2O2 and MDA were measured. The results showed: 1) The degradation rate of chlorophyll under light treatment was faster than that under CK. 2) Photochemical efficiency of PS Ⅱ (PhiPS2) and electron transfer rate (ETR) decreased by 60% and 75% respectively in the first 4 days under light treatment, which was significantly greater than that under CK. On the 7th day, photochemical quenching (qP) value and the maximum photochemical efficiency (Fv/Fm) value decreased to 0.28 and 0.23, which were lower than that under CK by 38% and 43%, respectively. 3) The peak values of H2O2 and MDA contents under light treatment ...
The reason that it has such a high chlorophyll content is because we use wheat grass juice powder as opposed to just wheat grass powder. Wheat grass powder can contain a lot of fibre. In addition our grass is grown in a field and not in a tray which optimises chlorophyll content.. Average chlorophyll content in wheat grass is 320mg/100g. The 100g is squeezed to make the juice. Grass fibre content is around 22% so from 100g grass we get about 78g grass juice with a total of 320mg chlorophyll. This 78g is then dehydrated in a ratio of 30:1 and becomes 2.6g wheat grass juice powder 320mg of chlorophyll.. In 4g Wheat grass juice we therefore have 492mg chlorophyll.. ...

The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of late-season N application (LSN) on chlorophyll content and leaf area index (LAI) of wheat. The experiment was laid out in as Randomized Complete Block split-plot design with three replications. Gun-91, Gerek-79 and Altay-2000 wintery bread wheat cultivars were used. Nitrogen was applied as conventional N (two equal amounts at seed sowing and tillering stage) and late-season N supplies (one-third of was applied during sowing, one-third at the tillering stage and the rest was applied as foliar at post-pollination stage). Chlorophyll content and LAI were significantly affected by N applications in both years. Chlorophyll content an LAI of wheat cultivars varied, depending on cultivars, N application forms and growing period. The highest chlorophyll content was obtained from Gerek-79 x conventional N application during the ...
The photosystem reaction centers consist of a special pair of chlorophyll a molecules that are characterized by their specific absorption maximum. The special pair in photosystem I are designated P700, and those from photosystem II are designated P680. The P is short for pigment, and the number is the specific absorption peak in nanometers for the chlorophyll molecules in each reaction center.. Chlorophyll a is common to all eukaryotic photosynthetic organisms, and, due to its central role in the reaction center, is essential for photosynthesis. The accessory pigments such as chlorophyll b and carotenoids are not essential. Some algae, such as brown algae and diatoms, use chlorophyll c as a substitute for chlorophyll b. Historically, red algae have been assumed to have chlorophyll d, although it could not be isolated from all species and even different collections of the same species. This puzzle has recently been resolved, since the chlorophyll d is actually from an epiphytic cyanobacterium ...

Photoprotective thermal dissipation of absorbed light energy is measured as non-photochemical quenching (NPQ) of chlorophyll fluorescence during exposure of plants to higher light intensities. We investigated the light response behavior of chlorophyll fluorescence and energy partitioning in PSII of npq4 mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana, which is lacking of PsbS protein, to that of the wild type plants. We found that the PsbS protein appears to function not only in thermal dissipation in light via xanthophyll pigments, but also modified the allocation pattern of excitation energy absorbed in the PSII to PSII photochemistry (P), thermal dissipation in light (DL) and excess excitation (E).. ...
The performance of the OC2 Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) algorithm based on 490- and 555-nm water-leaving radiances at low chlorophyll contents is compared with those of semianalytical models and a Monte Carlo radiative transfer model. We introduce our model, which uses two particle phase functions and scattering coefficient parameterizations to achieve a backscattering ratio that varies with chlorophyll concentration. We discuss the various parameterizations and compare them with existent measurements. The SeaWiFS algorithm could be confirmed within an accuracy of 35% over a chlorophyll range from 0.1 to 1 mg m-3, whereas for lower chlorophyll concentrations we found a significant overestimation of the OC2 algorithm.. © 2002 Optical Society of America.

Using a global ocean biogeochemical model combined with a forecast of physical oceanic and atmospheric variables from the NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office, we assess the skill of a chlorophyll concentrations forecast in the Equatorial Pacific for the period 2012-2015 with a focus on the forecast of the onset of the 2015 El Niño event. Using a series of retrospective 9-month hindcasts, we assess the uncertainties of the forecasted chlorophyll by comparing the monthly total chlorophyll concentration from the forecast with the corresponding monthly ocean chlorophyll data from the Suomi-National Polar-orbiting Partnership Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (S-NPP VIIRS) satellite. The forecast was able to reproduce the phasing of the variability in chlorophyll concentration in the Equatorial Pacific, including the beginning of the 2015-2016 El Niño. The anomaly correlation coefficient (ACC) was significant (p R = 0.33), 8-month (R = 0.42) and 9-month (R = 0.41) lead times. The root mean

The purpose of this paper was to obtain two innovative assortments of vegan creams (one with green lentils, spinach, broccoli, basil - VC1- and the second, with green lentils, avocado, basil - VC2) and to determine the content of chlorophylls, carotene and xanthophylls from the finished products obtained as well as from the raw materials used. After the spectrophotometric analysis it was found that between the two assortments of vegan creams obtained, the VC1 variant had a much higher chlorophyll (chlorophyll a: 282.48±1.36 µg/g, chlorophyll b: 20.34±0.07 µg/g) and carotenoids (55.46±0.42 µg/g) content than the VC2 variant (chlorophyll a: 51.22±0.29 µg/g, chlorophyll b: 17.11±0.06 µg/g, carotenoids: 21.72±0.20 µg/g). This is because VC1 contains, besides the green lentil, spinach and broccoli, vegetables with a much higher content of chlorophylls and carotenoids than avocado. For green lentils, spinach and broccoli, after boiling 8-10 minutes for use in recipes, there was a decrease ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Spectral features of reflectance and algorithm development for remote sensing of chlorophyll in Lake Kinneret. AU - Gitelson, Anatoly A.. AU - Yacobi, Yosef Z.. PY - 1995. Y1 - 1995. N2 - High resolution reflectance spectra, in the range from 400 to 850 nm, were acquired in Lake Kinneret during a period when dense populations of the dinoflagellate Peridinium gatunense dominated phytoplankton. Chlorophyll concentrations ranged from 5.1 to 185 mg.m -3 and from 2.4 to 187 mg.m -3 in the samples of two independent experiments. The most prominent features of the reflectance spectra were: 1) a wide minimum from 400 to 500 nm; 2) a maximum at 550-570 nm, which did not surpass 3% in samples with high chlorophyll concentration (, 20 mg.m -3), indicating a strong absorption by pigments in the green range of the spectrum; 3) a minimum at 676 nm. It was approximately 1%, and was almost insensitive to variation in chlorophyll concentration , 10 mg.m -3; and 4) a maximum reflectance showed near ...
What pigments absorb blue violet and blue green light? Chlorophyll is found in the leaves of the plants. You obtain the pigments called carotenoids in your diet when you eat carrots. Not all wavelengths of light are equally absorbed and different chlorophylls absorb more strongly in different parts of the visible spectrum. Violet blue wavelength is available at 450 nm and red at 650 nm. What wavelengths of light does chlorophyll b absorb best? Chlorophyll a absorbs wavelengths from either end of the visible spectrum (blue and red), but not from green. Red light is more effective in photosynthesis because both the photosystems absorb light of wavelengths in the red region between 680 and 700 nm, respectively . Furthermore, blue light is absorbed by carotenoids, which pass the energy to the chlorophyll, where as the light in the red region is absorbed by chlorophyll. Likewise, which wavelengths are least absorbed by chlorophyll? Relevance. The wavelengths that are least absorbed are between 550 - ...
Chlorophyll…chlorella…wheatgrass…barley grass…. Its getting confusing.. If I believed everything I read about these green products, Id be throwing back chlorophyll and wheatgrass shots, making barley grass concoctions and swallowing chlorella tablets every few hours. My blood would also be green… but hey, it would be alkaline!. Suffice to say, taking all four is overkill. Pick one, and youll benefit from the ascribed detoxifying and blood alkalizing properties of all four!. My personal preference: liquid chlorophyll. Its 100% cholorphyll versus less than 70% for wheatgrass, barley grass and chlorella. Most of the benefits from these super-green add-ons are derived from the chlorophyll content.. So why should you drink liquid green stuff that stains your teeth and makes your stool green?. Here are my top five reasons:. 1. Its rescue remedy for coffee drinkers.. Coffee and chlorophyll are like yin and yang. Coffee is acidic and chlorophyll is alkaline. A shot of chlorophyll ...
Chlorophyll molecules are organized in and around designated photosystems that perform the photosynthesis. In plants and algae, the photosystems are found inside cellular organelles called chloroplasts. Blue-green algae, however, like other bacteria, do not have cellular organelles, and their photosystems are located inside the cells membranes.. The majority of the chlorophyll molecules in the photosystems are responsible for absorbing the light energy and transferring it to the complexes that convert it into chemical energy. These complexes, located at the center of the photosynthesis system, are called reaction centers and they, too, contain chlorophyll molecules. When light energy reaches the chlorophyll molecules in the complex, it excites one of their electrons, causing it to move to another molecule. The chemical energy harvested in this charge-separation process is utilized later to produce sugar from carbon dioxide. Simultaneously, in order to replace the chlorophylls lost ...
In this study, we found that overexpression of AtCAO in tobacco plants affected the chlorophyll biosynthetic flux by modulating the gene and protein expression of several other chlorophyll biosynthetic pathway enzymes. A similar observation was also reported previously: that overexpression of other chlorophyll biosynthesis pathway genes (i.e. CHLM, PORC, and CHLG) comodulates the gene expression of several other chlorophyll biosynthetic genes (Alawady and Grimm, 2005; Shalygo et al., 2009; Pattanayak and Tripathy, 2011; for singlet oxygen-induced stress effects, see Tripathy and Pattanayak, 2010). In addition, Sakuraba et al. (2012) have demonstrated that increased Chl b synthesis delays senescence; thus, it retains the gene expression of several chlorophyll biosynthetic enzymes. These findings demonstrate the existence of a regulatory network among genes coding for enzymes involved in the greening process. Increased gene and protein expression of ALA biosynthetic enzymes led to augmented ...

Phytoplankton can exist in the water column, whole but non-functional, and the percentage of these dead cells in highly variable. These dead cells can contain chlorophyll and contribute to ocean colour, and hence estimates of oceanic primary productivity. The aim of this project was to assess indicators of phytoplankton physiological state, focusing on the formation of chlorophyll a oxidation products (allomers) and a chlorophyll precursor. Initially, to establish an appropriate method for the identification and quantification of chlorophyll allomers, a method selection and optimisation study was carried out. This assessment revealed that chlorophyll was prone to oxidation during sample analysis. Instrumentation, sample manipulation, method duration and HPLC solvent composition were all contributors to sample oxidation. The application of a method by Zapata et al. (2000) was found to produce minimal and consistent chlorophyll oxidation and was applied in subsequent studies. During a culture ...
Gas exchange rates were measured in the field on middle leaflets of Fragaria chiloensis (L.) trifoliates which were then used for Rubisco quantity and activity assays. Side leaflets of the same leaf were utilized for fourth-derivative spectroscopy, chlorophyll extraction, and specific leaf weight data. Differences of CO2 assimilation (A) rates were highly significant between genotypes ranging from 16.2 to 27.6 μmol CO2·s·m. Chlorophyll a and b, and total chlorophyll per unit area were positively correlated to A (r = 0.48**, 0.45**, and 0.49**, respectively). Total chlorophyll per unit dry weight had a correlation coefficient with A of 0.6**.. Fourth-derivative analysis of in vivo leaf attenuance spectra showed a positive correlation between A and Ca693 peak amplitude and a negative correlation of A and Ca677 peak amplitude. Peak amplitude of Ca693 was also correlated with chlorophyll content.. Activity per unit Rubisco was not a significant factor influencing A, but Rubisco quantity on either ...

Action spectra of the Emerson effect in Chlorella and Navicula reveal peaks at 670 mut, in addition to those at 650 mu (Chlorella) and 630 mµ (Navicula) attributable to chlorophylls b and c. Thus, excitation of chlorophyll a form chlorophyll a 670 can supplement, in these algae, the excitation of the form chlorophyll a 680-700. The effect of the auxiliary pigments in these algae may be mediated by energy transfer to chlorophyll a 670.. ...

If you remember your biology correctly, youll know that chlorophyll is a green pigment found in all green plants. Its whats responsible for absorbing light so that plants can have the energy to undergo photosynthesis. When it comes to skincare, chlorophyll is no less of a heavy-weight. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties make it a powerful ingredient that has been linked with reduced acne and pore size. Chlorophyll can be cleansing, purifying, and refining, helping to prevent breakouts and facilitate cell repair.. Importantly, chlorophylls chemical composition includes magnesium, which in high levels can promote the transport and storage of oxygen in skin cells. This leads to increased nourishment for skin, and a healthier, glowy appearance.. Chlorophyll is also full of vitamins A, C, E, and K, which all go towards making skin look brighter and more beautiful. Theyre also great for reducing the visibility of imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots from sun ...

This green pigment is not only important for the survival of plants but it has also many benefits for our organism. Chlorophyll, which we can take from many vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, chicory, spinach, salads, or also food supplements, has anti-anemic and cicatrizing properties and lowers bad cholesterol in the blood. Chlorophyll is very useful for the intestine because it regulates the bacterial flora and it also acts against free radicals, thus has anti-aging properties. Chlorophyll purifies the liver and it is also used in case of arthritis and it is also a valid aid in the case of varicose veins. Chlorophyll stimulates metabolism and is a source of energy for the organism, it is also used after the flu as a tonic. Chlorophyll also helps the red blood cells to carry the iron to the organs, which also makes it useful in case of anemia. It has also proved to be effective in regulating the menstrual cycle, and by improving the work of the heart, it is also useful in the prevention of ...
Photosynthesis in higher plants relies upon collection of light by chlorophyll molecules associated with light harvesting chlorophyll a/b-binding (LHC) proteins. The two most abundant of these are Lhcb1 and Lhcb2, which make up light harvesting complex (LHC) II trimers. They are also involved in facilitating state transitions, a process during which energy balancing between photosystem (PS) II and I is achieved. Overexcitation of PSII reduces the plastoquinone pool which activates STN7, a kinase, that phosphorylates a threonine residue on Lhcb1 and Lhcb2. In order to studythe kinetics of this we developed antibodies capable of recognizingphosphorylated forms of each of these proteins. This showed that Lhcb2 is more rapidly phosphorylated than Lhcb1, that there are no differences in the migration of phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated forms of Lhcb1 and Lhcb2 and that the majority of phosphorylated LHCII (P-Lhcb1 and PLhcb2) are associated with super- and megacomplexes. Furthermore, a state ...
Automated plant phenotyping has been established as a powerful new tool in studying plant growth, development and response to various types of biotic or abiotic stressors. Respective facilities mainly apply non-invasive imaging based methods, which enable the continuous quantification of the dynamics of plant growth and physiology during developmental progression. However, especially for plants of larger size, integrative, automated and high throughput measurements of complex physiological parameters such as photosystem II efficiency determined through kinetic chlorophyll fluorescence analysis remain a challenge. We present the technical installations and the establishment of experimental procedures that allow the integrated high throughput imaging of all commonly determined PSII parameters for small and large plants using kinetic chlorophyll fluorescence imaging systems (FluorCam, PSI) integrated into automated phenotyping facilities (Scanalyzer, LemnaTec). Besides determination of the maximum PSII

Spaceborne chlorophyll indices based on red fluorescence (wavelength = 680 nm) and water leaving radiance (Lw) in the visible spectrum (i.e., 400-700 nm) were evaluated in the St Lawrence Estuary (SLE) during September of 2011. Relationships between chlorophyll concentration (chl) and fluorescence were constructed based on fluorescence line height (FLH) measurements derived from a compact laser-based spectrofluorometer developed by ENEA (CASPER) and using spectral bands corresponding to the satellite sensor MERIS (MEdium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer). Chlorophyll concentration as estimated from CASPER (chlCASPER) was relatively high NE of the MTZ (upper Estuary), and nearby areas influenced by fronts or freshwater plumes derived from secondary rivers (lower estuary). These findings agree with historical shipboard measurements. In general, global chl products calculated from Lw had large biases (up to 27-fold overestimation and 50-fold underestimation) with respect to chlCASPER values. This was
Plants make use of complex metabolic processes to produce chlorophyll - the pigment that gives them their green colour and enables photosynthesis. The fact that so-called chlorophyll biosynthesis works smoothly even in the presence of heat is due to a certain helper protein: the chaperone cpSRP43. It ensures that, even in the midday heat, important metabolic enzymes retain their shape and see to it that chlorophyll is produced. This is shown by scientists from the Institute of Biology at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) and from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). For the study, which has now been published in the journal Nature Plants, the researchers exposed plants to heat stress and analysed enzymes in the laboratory. In doing so, they discovered the important function of the chaperone cpSRP43 in protecting chlorophyll formation against heat.. The metabolism of plants is also sensitive to heat. Plants cannot hide from extreme environmental conditions and have to quickly ...

Photosynthesis is the process wherein green plants or vegetables absorb light from the sun and transform it, along with minerals, water and carbon dioxide, into food to help them grow. It goes without saying that this is important not just to plants, but to humans and animals well. Oxygen, the chemical element that living organisms require to breathe, is a byproduct of this food-making process.. At the heart of photosynthesis is chlorophyll, a pigment that absorbs blue and some red portions of the electromagnetic spectrum that causes it to become green. This also results in plants getting their distinctive color. As chlorophyll absorbs the light, it creates carbohydrates that serve as the plants nourishment.. An interesting thing about chlorophyll is that it possesses potential health benefits that people can obtain when they consume vegetables. According to a study published in 2016, chlorophyll possesses antioxidant properties that may help promote longevity. With this in mind, no doubt most ...

Many molecules that are considered to be "dietary fiber" are so because humans lack the necessary enzymes to split the glycosidic bond and they reach the large intestine. Many foods contain varying types of dietary fibers, all of which contribute to health in different ways. Dietary fibers make three primary contributions: bulking, viscosity and fermentation.[49] Different fibers have different effects, suggesting that a variety of dietary fibers contribute to overall health. Some fibers contribute through one primary mechanism. For instance, cellulose and wheat bran provide excellent bulking effects, but are minimally fermented. Alternatively, many dietary fibers can contribute to health through more than one of these mechanisms. For instance, psyllium provides bulking as well as viscosity. Bulking fibers can be soluble (i.e., psyllium) or insoluble (i.e., cellulose and hemicellulose). They absorb water and can significantly increase stool weight and regularity. Most bulking fibers are not ...

  • Chlorophyll content was up to 100× higher on sediments than on hard substrata. (bioone.org)
  • The optical sensing of leaf chlorophyll has become a popular method for scoring leaf greenness and even for indirectly estimating leaf nitrogen content. (plantstress.com)
  • Leaf chlorophyll estimation by the optical method is based on leaf reflectance as it related in a nonlinear function to chlorophyll content. (plantstress.com)
  • The relations between leaf reflectance and chlorophyll content are affected by plant species, certain leaf properties and time of day in terms of available light. (plantstress.com)
  • The different sidegroups in the 2 chlorophylls 'tune' the absorption spectrum to slightly different wavelengths, so that light that is not significantly absorbed by chlorophyll a , at, say, 460nm, will instead be captured by chlorophyll b , which absorbs strongly at that wavelength. (bris.ac.uk)
