Photoinactivation of Photosystem II (PS II) during photosynthesis can lead to the loss of photochemical efficiency and decrease in crop yield. Plants have evolved various photoprotective strategies to ameliorate photoinactivation of PS II. Non-leaf organs of cotton also contribute to carbon gain, but it is not clear how they photoprotect themselves. This study investigated the photoprotective mechanisms in the leaf, bract, main stem and capsule wall of cotton. Our results suggested that the...[Show more]
