The unicellular rhodophyte Rhodella violacea can adapt to a wide range of irradiances. To create a light stress, cells acclimated to low light were transferred to higher irradiance and the kinetics of various changes produced by the light shift were analyzed. The proton gradient generated by excess light led to a non-photochemical quenching of the(More)
The repartition of light-harvesting complex (LHC) and photosystem I (PS I) complex has been examined in isolated plastids ofFucus serratus by immunocytochemical labelling. LHC is distributed equally all along the length of thylakoid membranes, without any special repartition in the appressed membranes of the three associated thylakoids ofFucus. PS I is(More)
In Rhodella violacea phycoerythrin (PE) has two transcripts, a premessenger and a mature messenger (the gene contains an intron). Phycocyanin, which is plastid-encoded, and the 33-kD PE rod linker polypeptide, which is nuclear-encoded, have only one transcript. The PE premessenger had a rapid turnover; mature transcripts were stable in the light and more(More)
