Activity of Photosystem 2, Lipid Peroxidation, and the Enzymatic Antioxidant Protective System in Heat Shocked Barley Seedlings

The impact of heat shock on minimising the activity of photosystem 2 (PS2) initiating high lipid peroxidation (POL) level and consequently changes in the enzymatic-antioxidant protective system was

Photosensitized inhibitor formation in isolated, aging chloroplasts

The results warrant the conclusion that the blue-light inhibition is closely linked to fatty-acid breakdown which is sensitized by light absorbed by pigments detached from the photosynthetic centers during the process of chloroplast aging in vitro.

Photooxidative damage to the cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis mediated by singlet oxygen

Experiments on the specific growth rate, bleaching of pigments, O2 evolution, lipid peroxidation, and loss of sulfhydryl (-SH) content in response to the varying light intensities (2–28 W/m2)

Light-dependent consumption of oxygen by Vicia faba chloroplasts.

A Parallel Study of Pigment Bleaching and Cytochrome Breakdown during Aging of Thylakoid Membranes

A tentative scheme accounting for the bleaching of pigments and the breakdown of cytochromes during aging in vitro of thylakoid membranes is proposed and it is suggested that these changes are mediated via a non-enzymatic mechanism in which free radicals could be implicated.

Photosynthetic apparatus in chilling-sensitive plants

Results indicate that the inhibition of Hill reaction activity due to the cold and dark storage of leaves is caused by both inhibitory FFA released from chloroplast lipids as well as by damage to the thylakoid structure affecting the electron transport within photosystem II.

PHOTOXIDATION PROCESSES IN PLANTS

The rate of photoxidation rises slower than linearly with light intensity; its dependence upon oxygen pressure has the character of a saturation curve.

The analysis of the primary process using flash photometry on normal plant cells and chloroplasts and on those which have been chemically or physically modified has led to the formulation of a reaction scheme for the transport of electrons in photosynthesis.
