Abstract

Using preilluminating flashes at 2°C prior to continuous excitation of isolated chloroplasts at ‐80°C, a period‐four oscillation with maxima at the 0th, 4th and 8th flashes was observed in the amplitude of the thermoluminescence band Zv. Inactivation of the water‐splitting system by hydroxylamine‐ or Tris‐treatments greatly diminished the Zv band. On the other hand, its amplitude was not considerably affected by the addition of inhibitory concentration of DCMU. On the basis of the results, the possible origin of the Zv band is discussed.
