Abstract

Photoconversion of protochlorophyllide650 form was observed in etiolated leaves illuminated with long-wavelength-690 nm-light. This process showed Shibata shift and was found to have a strong temperature dependence between 20 and -40°C. The low rate of reaction, the strong temperature dependence and calculations on the spectral overlap integral of absorption and fluorescence bands in this spectral region indicate that the phototransformation of the 650 nm form of protochlorophyllide may be caused by a back energy migration from a long-wavelength pigment form absorbing around 690 nm; this pigment form is probably a long-wavelength form of protochlorophyll/ide.
