The protochlorophyllide transformation process was investigated by using comparative analysis of 77 K fluorescence spectral changes occurring in isolated bundle sheath (BS) cells of etiolated Zea mays leaves after being exposed to a 200 ms saturating flash. Deconvolution analysis of the fluorescence spectra showed essential differences in the ratio of protochlorophyll(ides) and chlorophyll(ides) spectral forms indicating for BS cells to have a characteristic pathway of protochlorophyllide… CONTINUE READING
