Estimation of the Cyclic Electron Flux around Photosystem I in Leaf Discs

Kou, Jiancun; Fitzpatrick, Duncan; Fan, Da Yong; Takahashi, Shunichi; Oguchi, Riichi; Chow, Wah S (Fred)


Quantification of the cyclic electron flux (CEF) around photosystem I (PSI) in leaves has been hampered by the absence of net product formation or net substrate consumption. We estimate CEF as the difference between the total electron flux through PSI and the linear electron flux through both photosystems, both fluxes measured in the same leaf tissue in identical conditions. This method can be applied to leaves of plants such as spinach grown in high light and in which the Mehler reaction and...[Show more]
