- Occurrence of the lutein-epoxide cycle in mistletoes of the Loranthaceae and ViscaceaeShizue Matsubara
Research School of Biological Sciences, and School of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Australian National University, GPO Box 475, ACT 2601 Canberra, Australia
Planta 217:868-79. 2003..Possible molecular evolutionary processes that may have led to the operation of the Lx cycle in some mistletoes are discussed...
- Photoinactivation of photosystem II in leavesWah Soon Chow
Research School of Biological Sciences, Australian National University, GPO Box 475, Canberra, ACT 2601, Australia
Photosynth Res 84:35-41. 2005..This can be attributed to the formation of strong quenchers in severely-photoinactivated PS II complexes, able to dissipate excitation energy efficiently and to protect the remaining active neighbours against damage by light...
- Slowly reversible de-epoxidation of lutein-epoxide in deep shade leaves of a tropical tree legume may 'lock-in' lutein-based photoprotection during acclimation to strong lightShizue Matsubara
Photobioenergetics Group, Research School of Biological Sciences, Australian National University, Box 475 Canberra, ACT 2601, Australia
J Exp Bot 56:461-8. 2005....
- Populations of photoinactivated photosystem II reaction centers characterized by chlorophyll a fluorescence lifetime in vivoShizue Matsubara
Photobioenergetics Group, Research School of Biological Sciences, Australian National University, G P O Box 475, Canberra ACT 2601, Australia
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:18234-9. 2004..25-ns component. The strongly quenching PSII reaction centers could serve to avoid further damage to themselves and protect their functional neighbors by acting as strong energy sinks...
- Short- and long-term operation of the lutein-epoxide cycle in light-harvesting antenna complexesShizue Matsubara
Phytosphäre Institut Institut für Chemie und Dynamik der Geosphäre 3, Forschungszentrum Julich, 52425 Juelich, Germany
Plant Physiol 144:926-41. 2007..These results are discussed in the context of photoacclimation and shade adaptation...
- Lutein epoxide cycle, light harvesting and photoprotection in species of the tropical tree genus IngaShizue Matsubara
Phytosphere Institute ICG 3, Research Centre Julich, 52425 Julich, Germany
Plant Cell Environ 31:548-61. 2008..The results indicate that slow Lx accumulation in Inga leaves may improve light harvesting under limiting light, while quick de-epoxidation of Lx to L in response to excess light may enhance photoprotection...
- Nocturnal changes in leaf growth of Populus deltoides are controlled by cytoplasmic growthShizue Matsubara
Institut for Chemistry and Dynamics of the Geosphere Phytosphere ICG III, Research Centre Julich, 52425 Julich, Germany
Planta 223:1315-28. 2006..Thus, we propose that the spatio-temporal growth pattern in leaves of P. deltoides primarily arises from cytoplasmic growth whose activity increases from afternoon to midnight and thereafter decreases in this species...
