We studied the process of photosynthetic inactivation during gametogenesis of the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. We show that it is caused by the selective destabilization of a single transmembrane protein complex, the cytochrome b6/f complex, which is initially accumulated in the thylakoid membranes of vegetative cells. This protein destabilization is controlled by the intracellular energy sources available in the gametes, i.e. the coupled electron flow in the mitochondria… CONTINUE READING
