Chlorophyll d in an Epiphytic Cyanobacterium of Red Algae
Chlorophyll (Chl) a is found in all oxygenic photosynthetic organisms. Manning and Strain in 1943 ([ 1 ][1]) and others ([ 2 ][2]–[ 4 ][3]) reported Chl d (3-desvinyl-3-formyl Chl a) as the secondExpand

Quantitative analysis of 77K fluorescence emission spectra in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6714 and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii with variable PS I/PS II stoichiometries
Low-temperature (77 K) fluorescence emission spectra of intact cells of a cyanobacterium, Synechocystis sp. PCC 6714, and a green alga, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, were quantitatively analyzed toExpand

Short-term and Long-term Adaptation of the Photosynthetic Apparatus: Homeostatic Properties of Thylakoids
Light-energy conversion in thylakoids is accomplished by cooperative interactions between two photoreactions. The balance between these two photoreactions determines the efficiency of energyExpand

Endogenous Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) in Amphioxus
remains to be learned about the taxonomic distribution and biological function of these proteins in nature. To date, GFPs have been found in only two major groups in the metazoan tree: specifically,Expand

Chromatic regulation inChlamydomonas reinhardtii alters photosystem stoichiometry and improves the quantum efficiency of photosynthesis
The work addressed the adjustment of the photosystem ratio in the green algaChlamydomonas reinhardtii. It is shown that green algae, much like cyanophytes and higher plants, adjust and optimize theExpand

Knockdown of the PsbP protein does not prevent assembly of the dimeric PSII core complex but impairs accumulation of photosystem II supercomplexes in tobacco.
The PsbP protein is an extrinsic subunit of photosystem II (PSII) specifically found in land plants and green algae. Using PsbP-RNAi tobacco, we have investigated effects of PsbP knockdown on proteinExpand
