Photosynthetic consequences of impaired Photosystem II : antisense reductions in the PsbO proteins in Arabidopsis thaliana
Photosystem (PS) II is the multi-sub unit complex which uses light energy to split water, providing the reducing equivalents needed for photosynthesis. The complex is susceptible to damage from environmental stresses such as excess excitation energy and high temperature. This thesis investigates the in vivo photosynthetic consequences of impairments to PSII in Arabidopsis thaliana expressing an antisense construct to the PsbO proteins of PSII. Transgenic lines were obtained with between 25 and...[Show more]
