Recovery of photoinactivated photosystem II in leaves: retardation due to restricted mobility of photosystem II in the thylakoid membrane

Oguchi, Riichi; Jia, Husen; Barber, James; Chow, Wah S (Fred)


The functionality of photosystem II (PS II) following high-light pre-treatment of leaf segments at a chilling temperature was monitored as Fv/Fm, the ratio of variable to maximum chlorophyll fluorescence in the dark-adapted state and a measure of the optimal photochemical efficiency in PS II. Recovery of PS II functionality in low light (LL) and at a favourable temperature was retarded by (1) water stress and (2) growth in LL, in both spinach and Alocasia macrorrhiza L. In spinach leaf...[Show more]
