 Title    Effect of Tobamovirus Infection on Thermoluminescence Characteristics of Chloroplasts from Infected Plants  
 Abstract    Changes of thermoluminescence characteristics as well as the 0 2-evolving capacity was analysed in chloroplasts isolated from Nicotiana benthamiana infected with pepper and pa­ prika mild mottle viruses and their chimeric hybrids. The electron transport activity in thyla­ koids of virus-infected plants was inhibited and could be restored by adding DPC or Ca2+ which indicated that the virus infection altered the oxygen-evolving complex. In thermolumi­ nescence characteristics of plants infected with either viruses, the first well defined response was a shift in the peak position of the B band from 20 °C to 35 °C corresponding to S3(S2)Q b-and S2Q b~ charge recombinations, respectively, which showed an inhibition in the formation of higher S states in the water splitting system. Simultaneously, a new band ap­ peared around 70 °C due to chemiluminescence of lipid peroxidation. Further progress of the viral infection dramatically decreased the intensity of bands originated from charge re­ combinations with a concomitant increase of the band at 70 °C indicating the general oxida­ tive breakdown of injured thylakoids.
