The effect of substituted 1,4-anthraquinones on the photochemical activity and chlorophyll fluorescence of thylakoid membranes was examined. Both the fluorescence and the photochemical activity depend on the 1,4-anthraquinone substituent. Stronger quinone-induced quenching of the chlorophyll fluorescence than quinone-induced changes in the activity of(More)
The relationship between thylakoid membrane fluidity and the process of photoinhibition at room and low (4 degrees C) temperature was investigated. Two different membrane perturbing agents--cholesterol and benzylalcohol were applied to manipulate the fluidity of isolated pea thylakoids. The photochemical activity of photosystem I (PSI) and photosystem II(More)
The chlorophyll fluorescence, photochemical activity and surface electric properties of thylakoid membranes with different stoichiometry of pigment-protein complexes and organization of the light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b protein complex of photosystem II (LHCII) were studied in the presence of substituted 1,4-anthraquinones. Data show strong dependence of(More)
