From August 10 to August 15, 1998, a world complex study Workshop-Lecture direction at the chloroplast: from Molecular Biology to Biotechnology used to be held on the Orthodox Academy of Crete, Kolymbari-Chania, at the island of Crete, Greece. After 5 prior conferences at the chloroplast subject in Marburg (1975), Spetses (1978), Rhodos (1985), Aghia Pelaghia, Crete (1991) and Marburg (1995) this convention proved back that chloroplast study is constantly within the concentration of extensive study curiosity. The assembly, backed by means of NATO and supported by way of the Federation of the ecu Societies for Plant body structure (FESPP) and the Greek Ministry of improvement (General Secretariat of study and Development), used to be held lower than the auspices of the foreign Society for Chloroplast improvement and the nationwide heart for clinical examine "Demokritos", Athens-Greece. goal of the workshop used to be to collect specialists and scholars from diverse disciplines, coming from a variety of nations worldwide, learning chloroplast biogenesis from diversified views with the intention to suggest biotechnological methods, through genetic manipulation of the organelle, acceptable in fixing difficulties of monetary significance. 90 scientists (including observers) coming from 19 international locations actively participated and mentioned fresh advances within the box. through the assembly it turned transparent that end result of the growth made in molecular biology, together with genomic series, and in biochemistry over contemporary years, this interesting box of chloroplast improvement is continually promoted by way of renewed curiosity in as but unsolved yet vitally important questions.

22] even demonstrated a light-dependent phosphorylation in vivo, similar to state I-state 2 transitions in higher plants. As shown by earlier investigations [13, 17, 23] antenna proteins from different prochIorophytes are immunologically related to each other, but distinct from ChI alb proteins of higher plants. These findings were confirmed by more recent analyses of the genes encoding for prochIorophytic ChI alb proteins (pcb genes) [24, 25].

The activity of PSI monomers after light treatment is higher because of decomposition of some polypeptides of PSI complex. To check the possible protective role of PSI trimers, the kinetics of P700 photooxidation and quenching of F760 of PSI trimers was measured simultaneously at 77 K. It was found that fluorescence quenching is faster than accumulation of oxidized P700 (Fig. 4, left), though cation radical of P700 is responsible for F760 quenching [4,11]. Non-linear relationship between F760 quenching and accumulation of oxidized P700 may be interpreted only as energy exchange between the antenna of monomeric subunits (Fig.
