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".

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 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 ...

The duration of the experimental period was from January to December 2000 - a period characterized by considerable changes in temperature, photoperiod, light intensity, relative humidity and rainfall.. The temperature ranged between 38.9° C in summer to 10.4° C in winter. The photoperiod ranged from a summer maximum of 14.4 hours to a winter minimum of 9 hours. Light intensity varied from 69,000 lux in summer to 20,000 lux in winter. Relative humidity ranged from 84% during rainy months to 58.2% in summer month Our experimental results indicate that chlorophyll content both chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b and therefore the total chlorophyll is higher in the winter season and successively lowered in summer season. It was also observed that levels of chlorophyll were higher in Bangla variety in comparison to Mitha variety (Fig1). An increase in the activity of Chlorophyllase enzyme (responsible for enzymatic breakdown of chlorophyll by removing the phytol side chain) was reduced in winter season ...

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.

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

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.". ...

Definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorophylls). Chlorophyll (also chlorophyl) is a green pigment found in cyanobacteria and the chloroplasts of algae and plants. Chlorophyll is an extremely important biomolecule, critical in photosynthesis, which allows plants to absorb energy from light. Chlorophyll absorbs light most strongly in the blue portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, followed by the red portion. (Wikipedia). Preferred Units: N/A. Scope Note: ...
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 ...
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

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 ...

Responses of beech seedlings to supplemental UV-B radiation were investigated during three consecutive seasons, in three repeated experiments. Our attention was paid on the alteration of the photosynthetic pigment composition - especially on the xanthophyll cycle pigments - chlorophyll fluorescence parameters, furthermore the accumulation of UV-B absorbing compounds in leaves, the specific leaf mass and leaf water content. The enhanced UV-B radiation generally affected significantly neither photochemical efficiency of PSII, nor photosynthetic pigment composition. UV-B radiation induced some protective mechanisms, thus VAZ-pool increased in beech leaves in every experiment, parallel with the enhancement of non-photochemical quenching. Amount of UV-B absorbing compounds in leaves increased under enhanced UV-B, but no significant changes were observed in the specific leaf mass. Sensitivity of plants to UV-B is largely influenced by other environmental factors and experimental conditions.. ...
A new type of modulation fluorometer was used in the study of energy-dependent chlorophyll fluorescence quenching (qE) in intact leaves. Under conditions of strong energization of the thylakoid membrane (high light intensity, absence of CO2) not only variable fluorescence, FV, but also dark-level fluorescence, FO, was quenched, leading to definition of a quenching coefficient, qO. Information on qO was shown to be essential for correct determination of photochemical (qQ) and energy dependent quenching (qE) by the saturation pulse method. The relationship between qE and qO was analysed over a range of light intensities at steady state conditions. qE was found to consist of two components, the second of which is linearly correlated with qO. qO and the second component of qE are interpreted to reflect the state 1 - state 2 shift caused by LHC II phosphorylation.
Abstract. We present an empirical application of multispectral laser scanning for monitoring the seasonal and spatial changes in pine chlorophyll (a + b) content and upscaling the accurate leaf-level chlorophyll measurements into branch and tree level. The results show the capability of the new instrument for monitoring the changes in the shape and physiology of tree canopy: the spectral indices retrieved from the multispectral point cloud agree with laboratory measurements of the chlorophyll a and b content. The approach opens new prospects for replacing destructive and labour-intensive manual sampling with remote observations of tree physiology.. ...
In this study, backward and forward fluorescence radiance within the emission spectrum of 640-850 nm were measured for leaves of soybean, cotton, peanut and wheat using a hyperspectral spectroradiometer coupled with an integration sphere. Fluorescence parameters of crop leaves were retrieved from the leaf hyperspectral measurements by inverting the FluorMODleaf model, a leaf-level fluorescence model able to simulate chlorophyll fluorescence spectra for both sides of leaves. This model is based on the widely used and validated PROSPECT (leaf optical properties) model. Firstly, a sensitivity analysis of the FluorMODleaf model was performed to identify and quantify influential parameters to assist the strategy for the inversion. Implementation of the Extended Fourier Amplitude Sensitivity Test (EFAST) method showed that the leaf chlorophyll content and the fluorescence lifetimes of photosystem I (PSI) and photosystem II (PSII) were the most sensitive parameters among all eight inputs of the FluorMODleaf
Subject: Photosynthesis and function of pigment-protein complexes. 1. Chlorophyll f-photosynthesis. The photosynthetic reactions take place within the membrane-bound pigment-protein complexes, light harvesting systems and reaction centre systems. Chlorophylls are the essential pigments for photosynthesis. The function of chlorophyll fin photosynthetic reactions is uncertain. The approaches for this proposed project will include - methods for isolation of photosynthetic membranes and pigment-protein complexes by centrifugation, spectroscopic methods for probing the energy transfer pathways and liquid chromatographic methods for determining pigment compositions.. 2. Biosynthesis of chlorophyll f. The studies on photophysiological and biochemical properties of red-shifted chlorophylls will advance our understanding of their ecological and evolutionary significance. The recently discovered chlorophyll f has the most red-shifted absorption maximum that is involved in oxygenic photosynthesis. Its ...
Measuring a crops physiological parameters provides information for interpreting its response to the environment. Remote sensing is quickly becoming recognized as a valuable tool that has the potential to assess a wide variety of physiological properties over a large area in a short amount of time. This study examined the relationship of corn (Zea mays L.) leaf spectral response to its chlorophyll contentand relative water content. The effects of N stress and water stress were examined on each of these physiological parameters. Over the years, several spectral indices have been introduced for a wide variety of applications. A number of these indices were evaluated for their ability to predict the parameters in question. The normalized difference between the first derivatives at 525 and 570 nm, as well as the wavelength location of the red edge, showed a strong association withchlorophyll content (r2 = 0.81 and 0.80, respectively). Even stronger relationships to chlorophyll content were observed with

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. Thus these two kinds of chlorophyll complement each other in absorbing sunlight. Plants can obtain all their energy requirements from the blue and red parts of the spectrum, however, there is still a large spectral region, between 500-600nm, where very little light is absorbed. This light is in the green region of the spectrum, and since it is reflected, this is the reason plants appear green. Chlorophyll absorbs so strongly that it can mask other less intense colours. Some of these more delicate colours (from molecules such as carotene and quercetin) are revealed when the chlorophyll molecule decays in the Autumn, and the woodlands turn red, orange, and golden brown. Chlorophyll can also be damaged when vegetation is ...

In this study, we exploited two different expression systems in two distant plant species to address pivotal questions concerning the role and regulation of Chlase in chlorophyll catabolism. Although the EST database suggests that most plants contain more than one Chlase homolog, we chose to conduct this study using the Chlase1 gene from citrus (Jacob-Wilk et al., 1999) because (1) it is the only Chlase gene encoding an enzyme experimentally shown to be localized to the chloroplast (Trebitsh et al., 1993; Jacob-Wilk et al., 1999) and (2) it is one of only two Chlases for which the processing site of the mature protein was experimentally determined (Jacob-Wilk et al., 1999; Tsuchiya et al., 1999). The citrus Chlase1 gene was overexpressed in two systems: (1) a ZYMV-based viral vector expression system that efficiently expressed citrus Chlase versions in squash plants for at least 21 d, which was more than sufficient time to study the physiological effects of Chlase expression in plants; and (2) a ...

Did you know greed food has chlorophyll as a part of its genetic makeup or constituents? Do you know the difference between chlorophyll and blood?. Chlorophyll has magnesium and red blood cells have iron in the center of the molecule, holding it together. The name of the mechanism holding it all together is called a chelate. What is very interesting, is the fact red blood cells carry oxygen. I have to believe from my experience, it is possible knowing the body is a self-healing mechanism that people eat greens have less of a bleeding issue and more than likely have better quality blood. I am making the assumption because green food assists the liver in proper function. Optimal liver health promotes clearing of estrogen; excessive estrogen is a leading cause of heavy menses and bleeding.. Are you now seeing why all the talk about whole food versus process, dead food is significantly critical? Have you ever heard of succotash? Some of you may have never heard of it, or others may remember the ...
This study was designed to investigate the suppressive effect of chlorophyll a on nitric oxide (NO) production and intracellular oxidative stress.

During FY2013: The objective of this research is to characterize the physiological mechanism(s) of salinity tolerance in the selected alfalfa lines by identifying how the plants cope with saline soils. Physiological parameters, including total salt concentration in shoots and roots, relative water content, number of leaves, stem node elongation were also measured on alfalfa plants propagated in the greenhouse. Selected lines of alfalfa were tested to confirm their improved tolerance to salinity compared to their parental lines based on biomass production and other parameters. The selected line appeared to be the best among the three selection lines tested. The new line also showed better plant health as the other two selection lines. For example, it is able to maintain relative water content and it accumulates chlorophyll (based on chlorophyll content index measurement) instead of showing a decrease in chlorophyll content as their parental lines under salinity stress. All three selected lines ...

In the modern oceans, it has been established that phytoplankton productivity can be estimated from the concentrations of chlorophyll in seawater (Harris et al., 1996). Chlorophyll is the main pigment used in photosynthesis by higher plants and algae, which produce several pigmented organic compounds (Meyers, 1997). Chlorophyll, however, is not preserved in sediments, but chlorins and porphyrins, which are the transformation products of chlorophyll, are. Chlorins are the immediate diagenetic products of chlorophyll, whereas porphyrins result from long-term chlorophyll diagenesis (Rosell-Mel and Ko , 1997). Chlorin accumulation rates, calculated from density and sedimentation rates, have subsequently been shown to be a reliable and taxonomically independent indicator of paleoproductivity in areas of upwelling near Africa (Harris et al., 1996). The ratio of the concentrations or absorbances at wavelengths of 410 and 665 nm can also be used to classify the pigments. By assuming that chlorinlike ...
To order visit www.breathoflifeonline.com/online-store, Click Natures Sunshine and shop.. In nature, chlorophyll is what gives plants their green pigment. It is also responsible for channeling the suns rays into chemical energy, which is used for photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the transformation of carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates and oxygen.. Chlorophyll might be the only substance in the world that will pull more oxygen into the cells, while simultaneously protecting all of the cells from oxidation damage, and those so-called free radicals too. Readers who can appreciate the implications of this will soon find themselves as astonished as we are.. It was used in the 1950s, in certain U.S. toothpastes, because it was only toxic to harmful bacteria, such as candida. Due to this, it was an excellent breath freshener that also stimulated gum repair in people with gum disease. The Colgate company had its own line of Colgate Chlorophyll toothpaste.

A Taiwanese professor by the name of Chungpin Hovering Liao has created what he believes is the worlds first chlorophyll organic battery. Precisely how the battery works is a mystery, but the inventor claims that it can use any liquid (even urine) to generate a charge within 10 seconds. He also claims that the storage capacity is double that of Japans water-powered fuel cells, but it only puts out half the power of a traditional battery. Still, it would only cost 3 to 6 cents to produce a single, completely biodegradable unit. Liao has patents pending on his chlorophyll batteries

ESPINOSA-CARREON, T. Leticia y VALDEZ-HOLGUIN, Eduardo. Gulf of california interanual chlorophyll variability. Ecol. apl. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.1-2, pp.83-92. ISSN 1726-2216.. The Gulf of California is characterized as a semi-closed sea and an evaporation basin. It has been divided into various physical and bio-geographical zones, due to characteristic dynamics of each zone. The goal of this paper was to study the interannual chlorophyll variability from September 1999 to December 2002 during El Niño and La Niña conditions. Weekly composites for the study period with 9 km per pixel resolution were obtained from SeaWiFS imagery data. The spatial distribution of chlorophyll means suggest that the Gulf of California can be divided into three zones: oligotrophic (gulf mouth), mesotrophic (central area) and eutrophic (coastal region, north area and the Big Islands). The seasonal chlorophyll variability indicates a dominant annual signal. The interannual variability of chlorophyll in the Gulf of ...

On a plane ride to Spokane, WA to visit my brother, my seatmate and I got chatting; he asked if science was still discovering new plants. I consulted my Internet Machine and was able to answer YES! Though Ive not heard of recent discoveries in temperate regions, a brand-new-to-science heteromycotroph, Gymnosiphon samoritoureanus, was discovered in Guinea in 2010. Its tiny, with the tallest recorded sample only 5.2 cm tall, and has itsy-bitsy white flowers. Fun fact: though it is clearly related to others of its genus in Africa, it actually most closely resembles its relatives in the western hemisphere. Whats a couple hundred million years of separation and speciation between friends?. Conclusion: I Like Plants. You might have noticed. It is totally incredible how plants do photosynthesis-they use proteins containing the green pigment chlorophyll to harness the energy in light (mainly the blue and red wavelengths, in case you were curious), use that energy to scoot electrons around to create ...

Chlorophyll is what makes leafs green. It also contains the mineral magnesium and is chemically reminiscent of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is present in meat and your blood, where it binds and transports oxygen. The difference is that haemoglobin is based on iron and not magnesium. Because they are similar, a diet containing a lot of green leafs help prevent the cancerous effect meat can have on the lower intestines. This is why it is important to eat a lot of greens if you are a meat lover. Chlorophyll also prevents damage on the cells DNA molecules when they are attacked by cancerous substances in the form of Alfa toxins. DNA damage can be prevented by fifty five percent by an intake of one hundred milligrams of chlorophyll three times a day. This equals a little more than half a cup of chopped raw spinach every day. All you have to look for everyday is the colour; the greener the leafs, especially dark green, the more chlorophyll they contain ...

Have you ever wondered if many of the diseases raging through our society have a common cause? Many doctors, herbalists and nutritionists believe that the explanation may come down to three words: Acid and Alkaline. Most living systems function at an internal pH (the power of hydrogen) that is close to seven - this is when the system is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly. Higher than seven and we become alkaline, lower than seven and we are acidic. A finding of an individual to be acidic is far more common than finding one that is alkaline. Both drive disorder and disease. Apart from fresh lemon in water, Chlorophyll is the version of liquid kale i.e. both are alkaline forming, offering a unique way for the majority of the population to reduce their acidic environment and therefore reducing their relative risk for disorder and disease in their bodies." ...

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 ...
