How do environmental stresses accelerate photoinhibition?

Takahashi, Shunichi; Murata, Norio


Environmental stress enhances the extent of photoinhibition, a process that is determined by the balance between the rate of photodamage to photosystem II (PSII) and the rate of its repair. Recent investigations suggest that exposure to environmental stresses, such as salt, cold, moderate heat and oxidative stress, do not affect photodamage but inhibit the repair of PSII through suppression of the synthesis of PSII proteins. In particular, production of D1 protein is downregulated at the...[Show more]
