Effects of oxygen on the electron transport chain of photosynthesis
SummaryOxygen was taken up by both intact and broken chloroplasts when catalase was posioned. In confirmation of other work we found that oxygen enters the electron transport chain of isolatedExpand

THE FLUORESCENCE SPECTRA OF RED ALGAE AND THE TRANSFER OF ENERGY FROM PHYCOERYTHRIN TO PHYCOCYANIN AND CHLOROPHYLL
1. The fluorescence spectra of the alga Porphyridium have been recorded as energy distribution curves for eleven different incident wave lengths of monochromatic incident light between wave lengthsExpand

Evidences from Action Spectra for a Specific Participation of Chlorophyll b in Photosynthesis
Rate of oxygen evolution in photosynthesis was measured as the current from a polarized platinum electrode covered by a thin layer of Chlorella. The arrangement gave a reproducibly measurable rate ofExpand

Four universal forms of chlorophyll a.
We have matched the red absorption band measured at -196 C in a variety of chloroplast preparations with four major component curves representing forms of chlorophyll a having peaks at 661.6, 669.6,Expand

The action spectrum for the transformation of protochlorophyll to chlorophyll a in normal and albino corn seedlings.
Abstract 1. 1. A monochromator has been developed for use with a high intensity lamp by means of which leaves can be illuminated throughout the visible spectrum with light monochromatic within 5 mμ.Expand
