  1. 1. Molecular Mechanisms Optimizing Photosynthesis during High Light Stress in Plants

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Lan Yin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; light stress; photosynthesis; chloroplast;

    Abstract : Oxygenic photosynthesis is the process by which plants, algae and cyanobacteria use solar energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into molecular oxygen and carbohydrates. Photosynthesis sustains life on Earth since it provides not only energy for individual growth, but also represents the starting point of the food chain for most living organisms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protein phosphorylation and proteolysis - regulation and adaptive responses in photosynthesis

    University dissertation from Jens Forsberg, Plant Biochemistry, Box 124, 221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Jens Forsberg; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtbiokemi; proteolysis; Plant biochemistry; protease; two-component systems; protein kinase; protein phosphorylation; state transitions; light-harvesting antenna; photosynthesis; chloroplast;

    Abstract : Just as all other organisms, plants adapt to various environmental conditions. This work focuses on the role of chloroplast light harvesting complex II, LHCII, in adaptation of photosynthesis to changed light conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microbial Electrochemical System: extracellular electron transfer from photosynthesis and respiration to electrode

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Kamrul Hasan; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biological photovoltaics; electron transfer; electrode; Rhodobacter capslatus; thylakoid membranes; cyanobacteria; algae; photosynthesis; light; photocurrent; electrochemistry;

    Abstract : The electrochemical communication between microorganisms and electrodes has substantial implications both for basic understanding of biological electron transfer as well as in diverse applications, such as, microbial electrochemical system (MES), microbial biosensors and in production of valuable chemicals. In these systems the extracellular electron transfer (EET) from microbial metabolism to electrodes is restricted due to the insulated cellular exterior made of lipid structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Methods for measurements of chlorophyll fluorescence, luminescence and photosynthesis in intact plants

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Erik Sundbom; Thor Bernt Trondheim Melö; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Luminiscence; delayed light emission; phytoluminography; fluorescence; in vivo chlorophyll a^ fluorescence; photosynthesis; electron transport; frost tolerance; intact plants; Physiological Botany; fysiologisk botanik;

    Abstract : Methods were developed to study delayed light emission (luminiscence) and fluorescence changes in intact leaves of plants. Delayed light emission, detected from plants in darkness, was used to produce images of the plant leaves. The procedure was termed "phytoluminography". READ MORE
