The photosynthetic apparatus is reorganized during acclimation to various light environments. During adaptation of plants grown under a low-light to high-light environment, the light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b-protein complexes decompose concomitantly with an increase in the core complex of photosystem II. To study the mechanisms for reorganization of photosystems, the assembly of chlorophyll with apoproteins was investigated using isolated chloroplasts. When [14C]chlorophyllide b was incubated… CONTINUE READING
