In particular, the flavonoids, chlorophyll, anthocyanins, and soluble sugar contents, as well as the enzymes included in flavonoid biosynthesis activities and antioxidant enzymes were measured.
Chlorophyll is a photosynthetic pigment and plays an important role in the absorption of light energy during the process of photosynthesis.
Optical methods of chlorophyll express relative values of chlorophyll rather than absolute values per unit of area or leaf mass, however the values obtained through optical methods using portable chlorophyll meters are proportional to the concentrations of chlorophyll present in the leaves [2].
The relationship between these pigments reflects the functions of carotenoids which, besides light collectors, are sunscreens since they preserve the chlorophylls from destruction by oxidation when excess of captured energy occurs (TAIZ; ZEIGER, 2004).
The equations described by Wellburn (1994) were used for the quantification of chlorophylls a and b, the total chlorophyll content and carotenoids.
Data of various physiological (leaf chlorophyll a and b, proline and protein contents) and agronomic attributes (number of pods/plant, seeds/pods, grain yield/plant) was recorded.
The previously known chlorophylls absorb light of shorter wavelengths.
of London) provides protocols for high-performance liquid chromotography (HPLC) and HPLC used in conjunction with mass spectrometry for analysis, identification, and characterization of porphyrins, chlorophylls, bilins, and related compounds.
German colleagues from the University of Wurzburg in Huub de Groots team modified chlorophylls from the alga Spirulina, such that they resembled the pigments of bacteria.
German colleagues from the University of Wurzburg in Huub de Groot's team modified chlorophylls from the alga Spirulina, such that they resembled the pigments of bacteria.
This figure clearly illustrates that total chlorophylls content for non cryopreserved PLBs (-LN) were higher than cryopreserved PLBs (+LN).
