Cyclic electron flow in C3 plants – Photosynthesis – Application Note 3

Latest updated: May 6, 2020

SFM300&400 – μvolume operation


This application notes figures out as a first approach on how cyclic electron flow can be followed using JTS10 (Joliot Type Spectrometer) on a spinach leaf, in
absorbance mode. Photosynthetic process involves in electron transfer. The electron flow operates through two ways: cyclic and linear: In linear electron flow, the electrons are transferred from PSI to NADP and then to the Benson and Calvin cycle. In cyclic electron flow mode, the electron flow occurs between PSI and Cyt b6f complex (figure 1)
