Low-temperature Chlorophyll fluorescence provides important insights into the organization of the photosynthetic apparatus in plants and algae. The 77 K steady-state emission spectrum of thylakoid preparations consist of well-defined peaks, attributed to different components of photosynthetic electron transfer chain and allows monitoring of their functional state and interactions. For this purpose, we are using the Fluorolog TCSPC spectrofluorometer (Horiba, www.horiba.com) available at the Chemistry Department. The low-temperature fluorescence was used in following research papers: Dall'Osto, et al, Nat Plants (2017) 10;3: 17033Kosuge K. et al., PNAS (2018) 115(14): 3722–3727.
