Isolated thylakoid membranes were found to be efficiently protected against photo-inhibition by sodium bicarbonate (20 mM NaHCO3) under both anaerobic and aerobic conditions. Furthermore, data are presented which indicate that the pronounced sensitivity to photo-inhibition under anaerobic compared to aerobic conditions is due to the removal of protecting bicarbonate, rather than oxygen, from the medium. A second type of bicarbonate effect on photo-inhibition, in apparent contradiction to the… CONTINUE READING
