Photosynthetic organs are often characterized by anthocyanins being accumulated either in the epidermal or in the mesophyll cells making these tissues to turn reddish-brown in colour. It has been hypothesized that these pigments protect underlying chloroplasts from light-stress because they absorb photons of the photosynthetically active waveband. However, the photoprotective role of anthocyanins has not been undoubtedly shown on a broad range of species. In this study, green and anthocyanic… CONTINUE READING
