In this work, using the EPR and PAM-fluorometry methods, we have studied induction events of photosynthetic electron transport in Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves. The methods used are complementary, providing efficient tools for in situ monitoring of P700 redox transients and photochemical activity of photosystem II (PSII). The induction of P700(+) in(More)
In this work, we have investigated the effects of atmospheric CO(2) and O(2) on induction events in Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves. These effects manifest themselves as multiphase kinetics of P(700) redox transitions and non-monotonous changes in chlorophyll fluorescence. Depletion of CO(2) and O(2) in air causes a decrease in linear electron flux (LEF) and(More)
Photosynthesis is one of the most important biological processes in biosphere, which provides production of organic substances from atmospheric CO2 and water at expense of solar energy. In this review, we contemplate computer models of oxygenic photosynthesis in the context of feedback regulation of photosynthetic electron transport in chloroplasts, the(More)
This study deals with effects of oxygen on the kinetics of P(700) photoinduced redox transitions and on induction transients of chlorophyll fluorescence in leaves of C(3) plants Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and Vicia faba. It is shown that the removal of oxygen from the leaf environment has a conspicuous effect on photosynthetic electron transport. Under(More)
In this work, using a mathematical model of light-induced stages of photosynthesis, taking into account the key stages of pH-dependent regulation on the acceptor and donor sides of PS1, we analyzed electron and proton transport in chloroplasts of higher plants and cyanobacterial cells. A comparison of computer simulation results with experimental data(More)
In this work, we summarize results of computer simulation of electron and proton transport processes coupled to ATP synthesis in chloroplasts performed within the frames of a mathematical model developed as a system of differential equations for concentrations of electron carriers and hydrogen ion inside and outside the granal and stromal thylakoids. The(More)
In chloroplasts, photosynthetic electron transport complexes interact with each other via the mobile electron carriers (plastoquinone and plastocyanin) which are in surplus amounts with respect to photosystem I and photosystem II (PSI and PSII), and the cytochrome b 6 f complex. In this work, we analyze experimental data on the light-induced redox(More)
A mathematical model for the description of the key stages of photosynthetic electron transport and transmembrane proton transfer in chloroplasts is presented. Numerical modeling of electron and proton transport with due regard for regulatory processes on the donor and acceptor sites of photosystem I (PS I) was performed. The influence of pH-dependent(More)
In this work we have performed a computer analysis of electron and proton transport in cyanobacterial cells using a mathematical model of light-dependent stages of photosynthesis taking into account the key stages of pH-dependent regulation of electron transport on both acceptor and donor sides of photosystem 1 (PS1). Comparison of theoretical and(More)
A mathematical model of electron and proton transport in chloroplasts of higher plants was developed, which takes into account the lateral heterogeneity of the lamellar system. Based on the results of numerical experiments, lateral profiles of pH in the thylakoid lumen and in the narrow gap between grana thylakoids under different metabolic conditions (in(More)
