The effect of preillumination with low intensity (10μmol quanta m(-2)s(-1), 10min) light of different wavelengths in the spectral range of 550-730nm on photosynthesis and activity of PSII, the content of photosynthetic pigments and H2O2, as well as the peroxidase activity in the leaves of 26-d-old Arabidopsis thaliana wild-type (WT) plants in response to(More)
CO2 exchange, variable chlorophyll fluorescence, the intensity of lipid peroxidation (POL), and the activity of antioxidant enzymes in leaves of two-week-old pea seedlings (Pisum sativum L.) exposed to 0.01, 0.1, and 1 mM aqueous solutions of Cd(NO3)2 for 2 h were studied. Incubation with Cd2+ ions resulted in a reduction of the maximum quantum efficiency(More)
Seedlings of 10-day-old lettuce (Lactuca sativa L., cultivar Berlin) were preilluminated by low intensity red light (λmax=660 nm, 10 min, 5 μmol quanta m(-2) s(-1)) and far-red light (λmax=730 nm, 10 min, 5 μmol quanta m(-2) s(-1)) to study the effect of pre-treatment on photosynthesis, photochemical activity of photosystem II (PSII), the contents of(More)
Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Bartom seedlings grown on a substrate without or with zeolite were exposed to 450 and 1,000 µmol of Cd(NO3)2. Adding the zeolite to a substrate (+Si) resulted in the accumulation of mono- and polysilicic acids in the leaves, an increase in the growth of seedlings and biomass production, a decrease of the contents of thiobarbituric(More)
The reduced content of photoreceptors, such as phytochromes, can decrease the efficiency of photosynthesis and activity of the photosystem II (PSII). For the confirmation of this hypothesis, the effect of deficiency in both phytochromes (Phy) A and B (double mutant, DM) in 7–27-day-old Arabidopsis thaliana plants on the photosynthetic activity was studied(More)
The rate of CO2 gas exchange, transpiration, stomatal conductivity, and efficiency of the use of water were assessed in leaves of the sugar beet (Beta vulgaris var. Saccharifera (Alef) Krass.) sprayed with 40% methanol, against the background of increasing water deficiency in soil. A decrease in the negative impact of water deficiency in experimental plants(More)
The influence of phytochrome B overproduction in 50- to 60-day-old transgenic potato plants (Solanum tuberosum L., lines Dara 5 and Dara 12 with moderate and intense expression of PHYB, respectively) on the resistance of photosynthetic apparatus to UV-B irradiation was investigated. In plants unexposed to UV-B, there was no significant difference in(More)
The effect of UV-A radiation (365 nm) and the protective effect of preillumination with red light (RL, 664 nm, 10 min) or with a combination of red and far-red light (FRL, 727 nm, 10 min) on the activity of the PSII as well as the expression levels of selected genes, especially those encoding chloroplast proteins (sAPX, tAPX, CAB1, and D1), were studied in(More)
We studied the influence of prolonged (a few weeks) and short-term (a few hours) periodical elevation of the ambient CO2 concentration ([Ca]) on the photosynthetic apparatus and carbohydrate content in the third leaf of three-week-old cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) plants. On the basis of experimental data and subsequent modeling, we revealed the limiting(More)
Quantitative and qualitative characteristics of pigment composition and gas exchange were studied in chlorophyll mutants of pea, Pisum sativum L.: chlorotica 2004 and 2014. The mutant 2004 had light-green color, whereas the mutant 2014 has yellow-green leaves and stems; they contained about 80 and 50% of chlorophyll, respectively, compared to the initial(More)
