Different thermal sensitivity of the repair of photodamaged photosynthetic machinery in cultured Symbiodinium species

Takahashi, Shunichi; Whitney, Spencer; Badger, Murray


Coral bleaching caused by heat stress is accompanied by photoinhibition, which occurs under conditions where the rate of photodamage to photosystem II (PSII) exceeds the rate of its repair, in the symbiotic algae (Symbiodinium spp.) within corals. However, the mechanism of heat stress-induced photoinhibition in Symbiodinium still remains poorly understood. In the present work, we have investigated the effect of elevated temperature on the processes associated with the repair of photodamaged...[Show more]
