Grana-Localized Proteins, RIQ1 and RIQ2, Affect the Organization of Light-Harvesting Complex II and ...
Abstract Grana are stacked thylakoid membrane structures in land plants that contain photosystem II (PSII) and light-harvesting complex II proteins (LHCIIs). We isolated two Arabidopsis mutants, reduced induction of non-photochemical quenching (riq1 and riq2), in which stacking of grana was enhanced. The curvature thylakoid 1a curt1a) mutant was previously shown to lack grana structure. In riq1 curt1a, the grana were enlarged with more stacking, and in riq2 curt1a, the thylakoids were abnormally stacked and...
High energy challenges
The UK’s Central Laser Facility (CLF), part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), has recently developed an advanced high-powered laser, created to help research and development in the scientific community. CLF was tasked with developing a laser system for the HiLASE research facility, and Tessella (an international analytics and data science consulting services company) joined the project to create and build bespoke software to enable control of the laser. Through innovative design...
Light Plants and Scene Lighting for Natural Disasters
According to the Red Cross, the recent onslaught of persistent flooding in Louisiana has surpassed the devastating floods that came with Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Without warning, the state received a whopping 6.9 trillion gallons of rainfall in one week (based on a report from CNN). Over 40,000 homes were affected by the flood, resulting $30 million in damages. Scientists speculate that more natural disasters will hit the United States from all angles in the near future, as global warming continues to cause...
Green Light for Recycling – Biogas has an exciting future - Case Study
The tipping lorry of the container vehicle moves up. In minutes, its load of food residue is emptied and starts its course to energy recovery. "Energy for tomorrow" is the slogan of the Danpower Group for a reason. Danpower sees the biogas sector as a key growth factor for the future. Twenty five biogas plants are currently in operation, one of which is in Bad Köstritz/Thüringen. Excess, packaged and unpackaged food or food that has reached its expiration date is sensibly converted into energy here....
