PHOTOSYNTHETIC ACTION SPECTRA OF MARINE ALGAE
  • F. Haxo, L. Blinks

  • 20 March 1950
A polarographic oxygen determination, with tissue in direct contact with a stationary platinum electrode, has been used to measure the photosynthetic response of marine algae. These were exposed toExpand

TLDR
P.D. is reduced by contact with sap and balanced NaCl-CaCl2 mixtures; it is abolished completely in solutions of NaCl, CaCl2, KCl, MgSO4, and MgCl2. Expand
LIGHT-INDUCED EFFICIENCY AND PIGMENT ALTERATIONS IN RED ALGAE
TLDR
Some pigment changes were observed, but not in the direction of "chromatic adaptation;" and the carotenoid pigments were not activated, even by blue light, but remained as photosynthetically inactive shading filters; the higher red algae (Florideae) did not show activation of chlorophyll by red or blue light.

MUSCULAR ACTIVITY AND BUBBLE FORMATION IN ANIMALS DECOMPRESSED TO SIMULATED ALTITUDES
TLDR
Muscular activity during decompression causes bubble formation in the blood of intact bullfrogs and in rats, and the effects of mechanical agitation and of metabolic CO2 are considered to be the dominant factors. Expand
CARBON DIOXIDE AS A FACILITATING AGENT IN THE INITIATION AND GROWTH OF BUBBLES IN ANIMALS DECOMPRESSED TO SIMULATED ALTITUDES
TLDR
Experiments in vitro suggest that high concentrations of CO2 favor bubble formation by reducing the degree of mechanical disturbance necessary and reasons are given for suggesting that CO2, due largely to its high dissolved concentration in localized active regions, may be an outstanding factor in the initiation and early growth of bubbles. Expand
The Photosynthetic Function of Pigments other than Chlorophyll
TLDR
This chapter attempts to summarize current information on the role of the so-called "accessory pigments" in photosynthesis, and includes photosynthetic bacteria, which will be covered in Volume 8 of the Annual Review of Micro­ biology. Expand

PROTOPLASMIC POTENTIALS IN HALICYSTIS : II. THE EFFECTS OF POTASSIUM ON TWO SPECIES WITH DIFFERENT SAPS.
TLDR
The potential difference across the protoplasm of impaled cells of two American species of Halicystis is compared and it is found that H. ovalis has a higher potential than H. Osterhoutii, probably due to the higher concentration of KCl in its vacuolar sap. Expand
