- ... The effects of Mn²⁺ deficiency on light absorption, transmission, and oxygen evolution of maize chloroplasts were investigated by spectral methods. Several effects of Mn²⁺ deficiency were observed: (1) the skeleton of pigment protein complexes and oxygen-evolving center and the combination between pigment and protein were damaged; (2) the light absorption of chloroplasts was obviously decreased; ( ...
