Gradients of photoinhibition in the interior of a leaf induced by photoinhibition lights of different colors

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


Gradients of photoinhibition within a leaf caused by different color lights were studied to get more insight into the controversy whether photon absorption by chlorophyll or Mn is the primary cause of photoinhibition, suggested by the excess-energy hypothesis or the Mn hypothesis, respectively. We photoinhibited lincomycin-treated leaf-discs by white, blue, green or red light. A combination of a micro-fiber fluorometer, a fiber-thinning technique and a micro-manipulator enabled us to measure...[Show more]
