The damaging effect of oxidative stress inductors: methyl viologen, benzyl viologen, cumene hydroperoxide, H2O2, menadion, and high irradiance on the photosynthetic apparatus of cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 in cells of the wild type strain and the methyl viologen-resistant Prq20 mutant with the disrupted function of the regulatory gene prqR has been investigated by measuring the delayed fluorescence of chlorophyll a and the rate of CO2dependent -O2 gas exchange. It has been shown… CONTINUE READING
