The use of diphenylcarbazide as an electron donor coupled to the photoreduction of 2,6-dichlorophenolindophenol by tris-washed chloroplasts or subchloroplast fragments provides a simple and sensitive assay for photosystem 2 of chloroplasts. By varying the concentration of tris buffer at pH 8.0 during an incubation period it is shown that the destruction of oxygen evolution activity is accompanied by a corresponding emergence of an ability to photooxidize diphenylcarbazide, as evidenced by… CONTINUE READING
