Effect of high irradiance and high temperature on chloroplast composition and structure of Dioscorea zingiberensis

  title={Effect of high irradiance and high temperature on chloroplast composition and structure of Dioscorea zingiberensis},
  author={F. Y. Liao and Hait-tao Li and Ping He},
High irradiance (HI) and high temperature (HT) increased in chloroplasts the content of monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) and decreased the contents of digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG), sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerol (SQDG), and phosphatidylinositol (PI). HI and HT accelerated the transformation of DGDG to MGDG. The contents of unsaturated fatty acids in chloroplasts increased, while those of saturated fatty acids decreased. The contents of total carotenoids, neoxanthin, violaxanthin, lutein… CONTINUE READING
