Photosynthetic plasticity of Phalaenopsis in response to different light environments.
The ability of a plant to dynamically acclimate to different light environments is, in general, genetically determined. Phalaenopsis amabilis is a CAM orchid with heavy self-shading. The aim of this… Expand

Fluorescence induction of isolated spinach chloroplasts was measured by using weak continuous light. It is found that the kinetics of the initial phase of fluorescence induction as well as the… Expand
A possible origin of the middle phase of polyphasic chlorophyll fluorescence transient.
The rise of the chlorophyll fluorescence of a whole leaf as induced by high-intensity actinic light comprises three distinct phases, and is termed the O-J-I-P polyphasic rise. The initial rise (the… Expand
On the possibility of using a chlorophyll fluorescence parameter as an indirect indicator for the growth of Phalaenopsis seedlings
- B. Hsu

Abstract Chlorophyll fluorescence has been widely used in studies of plant physiology. The objective of this work is to seek the possibility of using a fluorescence parameter as an indirect indicator… Expand
Molecular identification for epigallocatechin-3-gallate-mediated antioxidant intervention on the H2O2-induced oxidative stress in H9c2 rat cardiomyoblasts

BackgroundEpigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has been documented for its beneficial effects protecting oxidative stress to cardiac cells. Previously, we have shown the EGCG-mediated cardiac protection… Expand
The high-affinity binding site for manganese on the oxidizing side of Photosystem II
Abstract Electron donation to Photosystem II (PS II) by diphenylcarbazide (DPC) is interrupted by the presence of endogenous Mn in PS II particles. Removal of this Mn by Tris treatment greatly… Expand
A Method for Analysis of Fluorescence Induction Curve From Dcmu-Poisoned Chloroplasts
The kinetic analysis of fluorescence induction curve from DCMU- poisoned chloroplasts involves the calculation of the growth of the complementary area above the curve with time. It has been shownthat… Expand
Diatrizoate contrast agents: 2-amino-5-acetamido-, and 3,5-diamino-2,4,6-triiodobenzoates.
We have examined the metabolic behavior of several triiodobenzoic acid derivatives because of the observed mutagenicity and cytotoxicity of 3-amino-5-acetamido-2,4,6-triiodobenzoate (I) and… Expand
Cloning and expression of a putative cytochrome P450 gene that influences the colour of Phalaenopsis flowers
Anthocyanins are responsible for reds through blues in flowers. Blue and violet flowers generally contain derivatives of delphinidin, whereas red and pink flowers contain derivatives of cyanidin or… Expand
Isolation and Sequencing a Genomic DNA Encoding for Phenylalanine Ammonia-Lyase from Phalaenopsis
The enzyme l-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase is universally present in higher plants and it catalyzes the first committed reaction for a central pathway that generates hundreds of different… Expand
