Biologic Effects of Light 1998: Proceedings of a Symposium Basel, Switzerland November 1–3, 1998

It truly is outstanding how a lot we take with no consideration the great strength and power that the solar offers earth's population. As we input the hot millennium, it truly is necessary to study how our ancestors perceived the biologic results of solar, and the way technology and medication have complicated our wisdom concerning the biologic results of sunshine.

Some of them are indicative for flavins, others for carotenoids, both probably bound to proteins within the living cello Arguments favoring carotenoids and carotenoproteins, respectively, are: 1. Maximal activity is found between 450 and 520 nm, very often between 500 and 51Qnm. 2. Many action spectra lack a UV peak around 370 nm. 3. Light has no effect on the movement of the carotenoid-free diatom Nitzschia alba (Nultsch and Wenderoth 1973). On the other hand, the following arguments favor flavins and flavoproteins, respectively, as photoreceptors: 1.

1976) found that the action 43 Effects of Blue Light on Movement of Microorganisms spectra for photoaccumulation and photodispersal of green and dark bleached cells, containing a colored stigma, and a streptomycin bleached mutant with a colorless stigma were essentially identical. Moreover. Benedetti and Checcucci (1975) and Benedetti and Lenci (1977) have demonstrated the presence of flavins in the PFB, using fluorescence microscopic and scanning microphotometric methods. Photomicrographs and microfluorescence measurements gave no hint that the pigment conte nt of the PFB was changed by the streptomycin treatment (Ferrara and Banchetti 1976).
