Abstract

Studies of flash-induced delayed light emission profiles of dark-adapted intact plant tissues revealed a previously unreported component of plant luminescence. Only partially evident in intact chloroplasts and totally absent in broken chloroplasts, this peak may reflect the interaction of one or more light-activated enzyme systems with photosynthetic electron transport.
