CHLOROPHYLL AND CAROTENOIDS: PIGMENTS OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC BIOMEMBRANES
Publisher Summary This chapter presents detailed information on chlorophylls and carotenoids to give practical directions toward their quantitative isolation and determination in extracts fromExpand
Determinations of total carotenoids and chlorophylls a and b of leaf extracts in different solvents
Various equations for the determinations of total chlorophyll and individual amounts of chlorophylls a and b in extracts from plant tissues exist (see Holden, 1976) and some of them (e.g. Arnon,Expand
Chlorophylls and Carotenoids: Measurement and Characterization by UV‐VIS Spectroscopy
The quantitative determination of chlorophyll (Chl) a, Chl b, and carotenoids in a wholepigment extract of green plant tissue by UVVIS spectroscopy is complicated by the choice of sample, solventExpand

TLDR
The DOXP pathway of IPP formation starts from D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and pyruvate, with DOXP-synthase as the starting enzyme, and provides new insight into the regulation of chloroplast metabolism. Expand
Inhibitors of the nonmevalonate pathway of isoprenoid biosynthesis as antimalarial drugs.
TLDR
A mevalonate-independent pathway of isoprenoid biosynthesis present in Plasmodium falciparum was shown to represent an effective target for chemotherapy of malaria and the presence of two genes encoding the enzymes DOXP synthase and DOXP reductoisomerase suggests that isoprene biosynthesis in P. falcIParum depends on the DOXP pathway. Expand
Vegetation stress : an introduction to the stress concept in plants
TLDR
A new dimension in early stress detection in plants has been achieved by the novel high resolution fluorescence imaging analysis of plants, which not only senses the chlorophyll fluorescence, but also the bluegreen fluorescence emanating from epidermis cell walls which can change under stress induced strain.

Detection of Red Edge Position and Chlorophyll Content by Reflectance Measurements Near 700 nm
Pigment contents was determined in and high spectral resolution reflectance measurements were acquired for spring, summer and autumn maple and horse chestnut leaves covering a wide range ofExpand
Two independent biochemical pathways for isopentenyl diphosphate and isoprenoid biosynthesis in higher plants
TLDR
In higher plants, there exist two separate and biochemically different IPP biosynthesis pathways: (1) the novel alternative GAP/pyruvate pathway apparently bound to the plastidic compartment and (2) the classical cytoplasmic acetate/mevalonate pathway. Expand
How to correctly determine the different chlorophyll fluorescence parameters and the chlorophyll fluorescence decrease ratio RFd of leaves with the PAM fluorometer
This contribution is a practical guide to the measurement of the different chlorophyll (Chl) fluorescence parameters and gives examples of their development under high-irradiance stress. From the ChlExpand
