Intra-leaf gradients of photoinhibition induced by different color lights: Implications for the dual mechanisms of photoinhibition and for the application of conventional chlorophyll fluorometers

Chow, Wah Soon; Oguchi, Riichi; Douwstra, Peter; Fujita, Takashi; Terashima, Ichiro


We studied how different color lights cause gradients of photoinhibition within a leaf, to attempt to resolve the controversy whether photon absorption by chlorophyll or Mn is the primary cause of photoinhibition, suggested by the excess-energy hypothesis or the two-step hypothesis, respectively. Lincomycin-treated leaf-discs were photoinhibited by white, blue, green or red light. Combining a micro-fiber fluorometer, a fiber-thinning technique and a micro-manipulator enabled us to...[Show more]
