The effects of ferricyanide on Photosystem II reactions have been investigated by measurements of microsecond and millisecond prompt fluorescence and microsecond-delayed fluorescence in dark-adapted chloroplasts: (1) Titrations using ferri-ferrocyanide mixtures on: (a) the fast phase of the increase in fluorescence yield observed during a xenon flash, and (b) the normalised area above the millisecond fluorescence induction curve for chloroplasts inhibited by DCMU, showed a pH dependent mid point potential of 400 mV at pH 7.0 which varied by approx. -60 mV/pH unit between pH 6 and 8.5. (2) A saturating laser flash induced a fluorescence increase (as monitored by a weak measuring beam) of only 50% of that reached following a second flash in chloroplasts preincubated with ferricyanide and inhibited by 3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea (DCMU) prior to illumination. In the absence of ferricyanide, the fluorescence level reached after a single flash was initially close to that measured after a second flash (although the level subsequently declined). (3) The initial amplitude of the microsecond-delayed fluorescence excited by a single laser flash was diminished in chloroplasts dark-adapted with ferricyanide. In the presence of D...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
