The luminescent characteristics of Arabidopsis wild type and two mutants, JB67 and LK3, deficient in lipid fatty acid desaturation are investigated as a function of temperature. The data reveal that lipid unsaturation exerts stronger effect on the delayed compared with on the prompt fluorescence. Some differences in the form of the induction curvcs of the delayed fluorescence and the kinetics of the delayed fluorescence dark relaxation between the wild type and the mutants were found. They are… CONTINUE READING
