Antennas and Reaction Centers of Photosynthetic Bacteria: by H. Zuber (auth.), Professor Dr. Maria Elisabeth

By H. Zuber (auth.), Professor Dr. Maria Elisabeth Michel-Beyerle (eds.)

The workshop on "Antennas and response facilities of Photosynthetic Bac­ teria" was once held at Feldafing, Bavaria (F. R. G. )' March 23-25, 1985. This workshop focussed on basic tactics with emphasis on constitution, inter­ activities and dynamics. It assessed structural, spectroscopic and dynamic info that have gathered lately, delivering an outline of the mech­ anism of the purchase, garage and necessary disposal of power in bacterial photosynthesis. This quantity is a list of the invited papers awarded on the workshop. the fabric used to be equipped into 5 sections: I. Antennas: constitution and effort move II. response facilities: constitution and Interactions III. Electron move: idea and version structures IV. response Cen,ters: constitution and Dynamics V. version platforms on functionality of Antennas and response facilities i want to precise my gratitude to the entire contributors within the paintings­ store for his or her contributions, and to the authors for the well timed education in their manuscripts. i'm indebted to the participants of the organizing committee, Professors Sighart F. Fischer and Hugo Scheer for his or her most respected information and recommendation. The workshop do not have been such a success with out the aid of my secretary, Frau Petra KahlfuB, and my coworkers in its association. I thank Frau KahlfuB really additionally for her tips within the coaching of those lawsuits. The workshop was once prepared below the auspices of the Technical Uni­ versity of Munich, the Max-Planck-Society and the collage of Munich.

49 counting with high time-resolution using a channel-plate photomultiplier. For data analysis the technique of simultaneous decay analysis has been used. A sum of four exponentials was required for a good fit. The data shown in Fig. 2 are the amplitudes of the exponential components as a function of the emission wavelength upon excitation at 590 nrn. These data clearly show a decay term (positive amplitude) of 10 ps lifetime at short wavelength,which turns into a rise term (negative amplitude) at longer wavelength.

The statistical errors of the decay analysis are smaller than these values. A exc \om .. T1 R1 [%] T2 ~ .. 81 [rnn] ..

E. the fact that the building blocs of the antenna rods are hexamers, numerous fluorescence studies have been performed on functionally intact phycobilisomes,as well as on their constituent aggregates [4-12]. Apparent differences in the results were blamed on different origin (organism) or preparation procedures, different measuring conditions (low or high light flux with the possibility of nonlinear processes), different excitation and observation wavelengths, etc. In this contribution, we summarize our measurements of the fluorescence decay of phycobilisomes from Mastigocladus laminosus and their isolated constituent biliproteins.
