Abstract


Isolation of intact photoreceptive organelles (eyespot apparatuses) involved in blue-light mediated photoresponses in a flagellate green alga (Spermatozopsis similis) allowed for the first time the identification of both 11-cis- and all-trans-retinal in a plant cell. Both isomers were identified by HPLC analysis in conjunction with UV spectra. Additionally, reconstitution of a distinct absorption band, centered around 540 nm, was achieved by addition of exogenous 9-cis-retinal to bleached, isolated eyespot apparatuses.
