Populations of photoinactivated photosystem II reaction centres characterised by chlorophyll a fluorescence lifetime in vivo

Matsubara, Shizue; Chow, Wah S (Fred)


Photosystem (PS) II centers, which split water into oxygen, protons, and electrons during photosynthesis, require light but are paradoxically inactivated by it. Prolonged light exposure concomitantly decreased both the functional fraction of PSII reaction centers and the integral PSII chlorophyll (Chl) a fluorescence lifetime in leaf segments of Capsicum annuum L. Acceleration of photoinactivation of PSII by a pretreatment with the inhibitors/uncoupler lincomycin, DTT, or nigericin further...[Show more]
