How does cyclic electron flow alleviate photoinhibition in Arabidopsis?

Takahashi, Shunichi; Milward, Sara; Fan, Da-Yong; Chow, Wah S (Fred); Badger, Murray


Cyclic electron flow (CEF) around photosystem I has a role in avoiding photoinhibition of photosystem II (PSII), which occurs under conditions in which the rate of photodamage to PSII exceeds the rate of its repair. However, the molecular mechanism underlying how CEF contributes to photoprotection is not yet well understood. We examined the effect of impairment of CEF and thermal energy dissipation (qE) on photoinhibition using CEF (pgr5) and qE (npq1 and npq4) mutants of Arabidopsis...[Show more]
