This short article is published with open access at title= brb3.242 Springerlink.comAbstract Paper describes principles and title= dar.12119 application of a novel routine that enables the quantitative evaluation on the photochemical O phase on the variable fluorescence Fv related with the reversible photo-reduction from the secondary electron acceptor QA of photosystem II (PSII) in algae and intact leaves. The kinetic parameters that identify the variable fluorescence FPP(t) associated with the release of photochemical quenching are estimated from 10 ls timeresolved light-on and light-off responses of Fv induced by two subsequent light pulses of 0.25 (default) and 1000 ms duration, respectively. Application of those pulses permits estimations of (i) the actual value of your rate constants kL and kAB of the light excitation (photoreduction of QA) and with the dark re-oxidation of photoreduced QA (Q?), respectively, (ii) A the actual maximal normalized variable fluorescence [nFv] related with 100 photoreduction of QA of open RCs, and (iii) the actual size b of RCs in which the re-oxidation of Q?is largely suppressed (QB-nonreducing RC using a kAB * 0). The rate constants in the dark reversion of Fv connected together with the release of photo-electrochemical quenching FPE and photo-electric stimulation FCET within the successive J and I components in the thermal phase are in the selection of (100 ms)-1 and (1 s)-1, respectively. The kineticsof fluorescence changes in the course of and following the I phase are offered unique interest in relation for the hypothesis on the involvement of a DlH?-dependent impact in the course of this phase and thereafter. Paper closes with author's private view around the demands that ought to be fulfilled for chlorophyll fluorescence approaches being a appropriate and unchallenged signature of photosynthesis in algae and plants.
