The Solar Action Spectrum of Photosystem II Damage 1[W][OA]

Takahashi, Shunichi; Milward, Sara; Yamori, Wataru; Evans, John; Hillier, Warwick; Badger, Murray


The production of oxygen and the supply of energy for life on earth rely on the process of photosynthesis using sunlight. Paradoxically, sunlight damages the photosynthetic machinery, primarily photosystem II (PSII), leading to photoinhibition and loss of plant performance. However, there is uncertainty about which wavelengths are most damaging to PSII under sunlight. In this work we examined this in a simple experiment where Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) leaves were exposed to different...[Show more]
