Photosynthesis Research

Photosynthesis Research

Photosynthesis is a biochemical process in which plants, algae, and some bacteria use chlorophyll to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and release oxygen in the presence of visible light. Photosynthesis provides organisms with food, energy, and oxygen to maintain respiration and the ozone layer against the killing effects of ultraviolet light. Photosynthesis is the basis for the formation, development, and prosperity of the biosphere and its continued functioning. Analyzing plant photosynthesis using biophysical methods can help provide insight into the mechanisms of plant growth and development.

CD BioSciences combines biophysics and plant biology to provide researchers with a comprehensive analysis of plant photosynthesis through an advanced and specialized technological platform designed to study the mechanisms of plant growth and energy conversion systems.

Applications in Photosynthesis Research

CD BioSciences possesses professional biophysicists and botanists, committed to providing customers with comprehensive, professional, and accurate testing services to assist in the research and exploration of plant photosynthesis mechanisms.

Electron Transfer Chain

Electron transfer in the photosynthesis light reaction is the process of converting light energy into chemical energy during photosynthesis. This entire chemical process stems primarily from changes that occur when light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll molecules in plants and phycocyanin molecules in cyanobacteria. We can provide techniques to measure and analyze the kinetics of electron transfer, further revealing the rate and efficiency of electron transfer as well as the key factors that influence it. Our biophysical analysis techniques not only help to study the complex structure and function of the electron transfer chain but also provide an important theoretical basis for optimizing the electron transfer process in photosynthesis.

Substance Transport

Sucrose is the main photosynthetic product of plants, which is synthesized in the leaves of source organs, transported to storage organs via vascular tissues, and hydrolyzed to synthesize starch, proteins, and other organic substances. We offer a full range of tracers and imaging technologies that allow us to observe and analyze the synthesis, transport, and storage processes of photosynthetic products in cells. In addition, using our biophysical analysis techniques, we can explore the metabolic pathways and regulatory mechanisms of photosynthetic products, and thus provide a theoretical basis for improving the yield and quality of photosynthetic products.

Chlorophyll Research

The chlorophyll content of leaves can reflect the response of photosynthesis in different spectral bands. Our technology platform can provide infrared and spectral techniques for chlorophyll content detection. In addition, our infrared thermography can be used to study the heat distribution during plant photosynthesis, further expanding the scope of plant photosynthesis research. What's more, we provide chlorophyll fluorescence technology to reflect the efficiency of photosynthesis and the light-trapping ability of chlorophyll. By measuring chlorophyll fluorescence parameters, processes such as photosynthetic efficiency, photoinhibition of photosynthesis and non-photochemical burst of photosynthesis can be assessed.

Energy Conversion

Light energy is first converted to active chemical energy in ATP and then to stabilized chemical energy in ADP and stored. To determine the ability of plant leaves to absorb and reflect light at different wavelengths, we offer spectral analysis techniques for photosynthesis studies. By measuring and analyzing the interaction of different wavelengths of light with photosynthetic pigments, we help our clients study the light energy captured by photosynthetic pigments. In addition, our biophysical analysis techniques help to reveal the efficiency and mechanism of light energy conversion in photosynthesis, laying the foundation for research in plant physiology.

Molecular Dynamics

We offer ray crystallography, NMR, and other techniques for the analysis of the molecular structures of photosynthetic pigments, enzymes, and other key proteins. This information is important for understanding the molecular mechanisms and regulation of photosynthesis.
