Anomalous electron transport activity in a Photosystem I-deficient maize mutant

  title={Anomalous electron transport activity in a Photosystem I-deficient maize mutant},
  author={William Byron Cook and Donald Miles},
  journal={Photosynthesis Research},
Photosynthesis mutations were induced in maize lines bearing the transposable DNA element system, Mutator. Two Photosystem I mutants (hcf101 and hcf104) which were isolated are described here. Maize plants homozygous for the hcf104 mutation are seedling lethal and exhibit a high in vivo chlorophyll fluorescence yield. They lack ∼60% of CP1, P700 and PSI-specific electron transport activity relative to normal sibling plants. The comparable depletion of these three measures of PS I content… CONTINUE READING
