Glycinebetaine protects the D1/D2/Cytb559 complex of photosystem II against photo-induced and heat-induced inactivation.


The presence of 1.0 mol/L glycinebetaine during isolation of D1/D2/Cytb559 reaction centre (RC) complexes from photosystem II (PSII) membrane fragments preserved the photochemical activity, monitored as the light-induced reduction of pheophytin and electron transport from diphenylcarbazide to 2.6-dichlorophenol-indophenol.-Glycinebetaine also protected the… (More)
