The involvement of dual mechanisms of photoinactivation of photosystem II in Capsicum annuum L. plants

Oguchi, Riichi; Terashima, Ichiro; Chow, Wah S (Fred)


For plants, light is an indispensable resource. However, it also causes a loss of photosynthetic activity associated with photoinactivation of photosystem II (PSII). In studies of the mechanism of this photoinactivation, there are two conflicting hypotheses at present. One is that excess energy received by leaves, being neither utilized by photosynthesis nor dissipated safely in non-photochemical quenching, causes the photoinactivation. The other involves a two-step mechanism in which...[Show more]
