Confocal microscopy of thylakoid autofluorescence in relation to origin of grana and phylogeny in the green alga

Gunning, Brian; Schwartz, Owen


Confocal microscopy was used to examine heterogeneity of chlorophyll fluorescence in chloroplasts of selected green algae, in the light of evidence that the technique reveals the distribution of photosystem II (PSII). Three levels of complexity were seen: (1)uniform fluorescence (Codium) or intergrading zones of bright and less bright fluorescence in genera known from electron microscopy to have irregular areas of thylakoid appression (e.g. Chlamydomonas - in which Bertos and Gibbs (J. Phycol.,...[Show more]
