Variability in the primary site of photosynthetic damage in symbiodinium sp. (dinophyceae) exposed to thermal stress

Buxton, Lucy; Takahashi, Shunichi; Hill, Ross; Ralph, Peter J

Description

Exposure to elevated temperature is known to cause photosynthetic inhibition in the coral symbiont Symbiodinium sp. Through the use of the artificial electron acceptor, methyl viologen, this study identified how reduced photosynthetic capacity occurs as a result of inhibition up- and/or downstream of ferredoxin in Symbiodinium sp. in hospite and in culture. Heterogeneity between coral species and symbiont clades was identified in the thermal sensitivity of photosynthesis in the symbionts of the...[Show more]
