The psae1-1 mutant of Arabidopsis was identified on the basis of a decrease in the effective quantum yield of photosystem II, among a collection of plants subjected to transposon tagging with the Enhancer element. The steady-state redox level and the rate of re-oxidation of P700 are significantly altered in psae1-1 mutants. The responsible mutation was localised to psaE1, one of two Arabidopsis genes that encode subunit E of photosystem I. An additional mutant allele, psae1-2, was identified by… CONTINUE READING
