Photosynthesis Research

Photosynthesis Research

Photosynthesis is a biochemical process in which plants, algae, and certain bacteria use chlorophyll to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose with the release of oxygen in the presence of visible light. Photosynthesis provides organisms with food, energy, and oxygen to sustain respiration and the ozone layer to defend against the killing effects of ultraviolet light. It becomes 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.

Electron Transfer Chain

Photosynthetic light reaction electron transfer refers to the process in which light energy is converted into chemical energy during photosynthesis. This whole chemical process mainly originates from the changes that occur when chlorophyll molecules in plants and phycocyanin molecules in cyanobacteria absorb light energy. Measuring and analyzing the dynamics of electron transfer reveals the rate and efficiency of electron transfer, as well as the key factors affecting electron transfer. Biophysical techniques not only help to study the complex structure and function of the electron transport chain but also provide an important theoretical basis for optimizing the electron transport process of photosynthesis.

Substance Transport

Sucrose is the main photosynthetic product of plants, which is synthesized in the leaves of source organs and transported to reservoir organs via vascular tissues, and hydrolyzed for the synthesis of starch, proteins, and other organic substances. Using tracer and imaging techniques, the synthesis, transport, and storage processes of photosynthetic products in cells can be observed and analyzed. In addition, exploring the metabolic pathways and regulatory mechanisms of photosynthetic products can provide a theoretical basis for improving the yield and quality of photosynthetic products.

Spectrum Research

The chlorophyll content of leaves can reflect the response of photosynthesis in different spectral bands, and infrared and spectroscopy techniques are used by light amplification for this detection. In addition, infrared thermography can also be used to study the heat distribution during plant photosynthesis, further expanding the research scope of plant photosynthesis. Currently, chlorophyll fluorescence technology can reflect the efficiency of photosynthesis and the light-trapping capacity of chlorophyll. By measuring chlorophyll fluorescence parameters, processes such as photosynthetic efficiency, photoinhibition of photosynthesis and non-photochemical quenching of photosynthesis can be assessed.

Energy Conversion

Light energy is first converted into active chemical energy in ATP and then into stable chemical energy in ADP and stored. To determine the ability of plant leaves to absorb and reflect light of different wavelengths, spectral analysis techniques are widely used in the study of photosynthesis. Measuring and analyzing the interaction of different wavelengths of light with photosynthetic pigments contributes to the study of light energy captured by photosynthetic pigments. In addition, biophysical techniques help to reveal the efficiency and mechanism of light energy conversion in photosynthesis, laying the foundation for the study of plant physiology.

Molecular Dynamics

The molecular structures of photosynthetic pigments, enzymes, and other key proteins, as well as their interactions and dynamic changes in photosynthesis, can be analyzed using X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance, and other techniques. This information is important for understanding the molecular mechanisms and regulation of photosynthesis.
