Plant Physiology

Plant Physiology

Plant physiology covers the study of photosynthesis, water physiology, mineral nutrition, and stress resistance, which is important for agricultural production, ecological environmental protection, and plant resource utilization in scientific research and practical application. Biophysical techniques such as X-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and Raman spectroscopy are of great significance in elucidating plant growth and development, morphogenesis, material and energy metabolism, information transfer, and transduction.

CD BioSciences, a leading biophysical specialist with a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment and technology platforms, is committed to the study of plant physiology, including photosynthesis, cell walls, root growth, transpiration, and mechanical forces.

Photosynthesis Research

Photosynthesis is a biochemical process in which plants, algae, and certain bacteria use chlorophyll to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and release oxygen under the irradiation of visible light. This reaction plays an irreplaceable role in realizing energy conversion in nature and maintaining the carbon-oxygen balance of the atmosphere. The use of biophysical technology to study photosynthesis plays a basic guiding role in agricultural production, environmental protection, and other fields.

Plant Cell Wall Research

The plant cell wall is a complex network structure whose components include cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin, and a small number of structural proteins. It is mainly involved in maintaining a certain shape of cells, enhancing the mechanical strength of cells, and is also related to the physiological activities of cells. A variety of advanced microscopy imaging techniques further elucidate the composition, structure, and function of cell walls and advance plant physiology research.

Plant Root Research

Plant roots absorb water and dissolve inorganic salts in the soil and support, reproduce, store, and synthesize organic matter.

They also support, reproduce, and store organic matter for synthesis. Currently, various biophysical techniques can be used to investigate the structure and function of plant roots to further understand the relationship between plants and the environment, and to provide a practical basis for ecosystem conservation and restoration.

Transpiration Research

Transpiration is the loss of water from the body to the outside through the surface of leaves in a gaseous state. Through biophysical techniques, it can be found that transpiration not only maintains the water balance in the plant but also helps in the absorption and transportation of nutrients.

Pollen Tube Growth

Pollen tube growth was found to be a key step in the sexual reproduction process of flowering plants, responsible for transporting two immobile sperm cells to the embryo sac to complete the double fertilization process in flowering plants. The observation of microfilament arrangement and dynamics at the tip of pollen tubes using microscopic imaging techniques is of great scientific and theoretical significance for understanding the cytological basis of the rapid growth of pollen tubes.

Plants & Environment

There is a close and complex relationship between plants and the environment. Environmental factors such as light, temperature, moisture, etc. can directly affect the biological processes in plant cells. Biophysical technology can further study the interaction mechanism between plants and the environment, which is of great significance to protecting the ecological environment and promoting sustainable development.

Cellulose Research

Cellulose is a large polysaccharide composed of glucose, which is the main component of plant cell walls. Biophysical technology can reveal the microstructure, morphology, and relationship between cellulose and its properties, further providing a theoretical basis for the modification and application development of cellulose.

Plant Mechanics Research

Plant biomechanics provides strong support for understanding plant growth, development, ability to adapt to the environment, and the application of plant materials. Advanced biophysical techniques can elucidate plant mechanical properties, which are critical to understanding plant morphological development and ability to adapt to the environment.
