Studies directly related to light environments within a leaf, conduced mainly in the past one-third century, are reviewed. In particular, studies that revealed the profiles of light absorption and photosynthetic capacity are highlighted. Progress in this research field has been accelerated by devising innovative techniques. Roles of the main photosynthetic(More)
Epidermal growth factor inhibits elastin synthesis in chick aortic smooth muscle cells. The inhibitory effect was dose-dependent with a ninety percent reduction at 100 ng/ml and time-dependent with at least 6h lag phase for the expression of the effect. In contrast, collagen synthesis remained constant. The degree of inhibition in elastin synthesis was(More)
