Structure of a green algal photosystem I in complex with a large number of light-harvesting complex I subunits.

Photosystem I (PSI) is a highly efficient natural light-energy converter, and has diverse light-harvesting antennas associated with its core in different photosynthetic organisms. In green algae, an e...

Efficient Light Harvesting Systems with Tunable Emission through Controlled Precipitation in Confined Nanospace.

Light harvesting is a key step in photosynthesis but creation of synthetic light-harvesting systems (LHSs) with high efficiency has been challenging. When donor and acceptor dyes with aggregation-indu...

Hypoxia/hypercapnia prevents iron-dependent cold injuries in cord blood stem and progenitor cells.

Cold-induced cell injuries are associated with an increase in the cellular labile iron pool (LIP) followed by lipid peroxidation and alteration of mitochondrial function, which lead to cell death. Rec...

Efficient hydrogen production using photosystem I enhanced by artificial light harvesting dye.

In this study, we improved the hydrogen production efficiency by combining photosystem I with an artificial light harvesting dye, Lumogen Red. In the reaction system, Lumogen Red allows light absorpti...

Energy transfer dynamics in a red-shifted violaxanthin-chlorophyll a light-harvesting complex.

Photosynthetic eukaryotes whose cells harbor plastids originating from secondary endosymbiosis of a red alga include species of major ecological and economic importance. Since utilization of solar ene...

Running Study for Runners With Chronic Knee Pain

The purpose of this study is to determine whether changing foot strike pattern from a rearfoot strike to a forefoot strike reduces chronic running-related knee pain. It is believed that sw...

Comparison of Graft Quality and Patient Morbidity Following Palatal Harvesting.

The purpose of this study is to compare four different connective tissue graft harvesting technique in terms of graft quality and patient post-operative morbidity

Iron Absorption From Fortified Extruded Rice Using Different Extruding Temperatures.

Food fortification is regarded as a safe and cost-effective approach to counteract and prevent iron deficiency. Rice is a staple food for millions of people living in regions where iron-de...

Using Real Time Biofeedback to Alter Running Mechanics

The purposes of this study are 1) to assess foot strike patterns initially, at six months and at one year between two groups of runners attempting to transition to a non-rearfoot strike pa...

Mineral Absorption From Fortified Rice Produced With Different Fortification Techniques

The investigators studies will compare iron, respectively iron and zinc bioavailability from fortified rice produced from different fortification techniques using stable isotopic labels. S...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.

Light energy harvesting structures attached to the THYLAKOID MEMBRANES of CYANOBACTERIA and red algae (ALGAE, RED). These multiprotein complexes contain pigments (PHYCOBILIPROTEINS) that transfer light energy to chlorophyll a.

A large multisubunit protein complex found in the THYLAKOID MEMBRANE. It uses light energy derived from LIGHT-HARVESTING PROTEIN COMPLEXES to catalyze the splitting of WATER into DIOXYGEN and of reducing equivalents of HYDROGEN.

Light harvesting proteins found in phycobilisomes.

A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its rate of degradation is increased in the presence of IRON.
