Evidence of electrical potential changes in photophobically reacting blue-green algae


The correlation between photophobic responses and light-induced electric potential changes has been studied in the blue-green alga Phormidium uncinatum. 1. The photophobic reaction time depends on both length of preillumination and presentation time of stimulus. Under optimal conditions a reaction time of about 10 s has been determined. 2. Light-induced… (More)
