Light-intensity-dependent regulatory mechanisms in protection of Photosystem I in Arabidopsis
(Turun yliopisto, 2019-08-14)
In photosynthetic light reactions, photosystem (PS)II and PSI as well as Cytochrome b6f, which are embedded in the thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts, transfer electrons from water molecules to NADP+ using the light energy ...
The biological role of omega subunit of cyanobacterial RNA polymerase
(Turun yliopisto, 2020-08-18)
ABSTRACT Cyanobacteria are important primary producers performing oxygenic photosynthesis using CO2 or HCO3- as a carbon source. Active adjustment of gene expression according to environmental cues depends on the RNA ...
The Importance of natural colors in food for the visual attractiveness of everyday lunch
(Turun yliopisto, 2020-09-25)
Food is always seen to possess colors. Colors are one of the first sensory stimuli in the perception of food, and color cues are utilized to imagine the expected taste, flavor and liking of food. Although the importance ...
Wastewater treatment with algae
(Turun yliopisto, 2020-06-16)
Microalgae have been under investigation as alternatives for wastewater treatment for the last 60 years. However, we are yet to see an algal based process to be trusted as a treatment strategy on a large scale. At present, ...
