Light-state transitions in cyanobacteria are a rapid physiological adaptation mechanism which changes the distribution of excitation energy absorbed by the light-harvesting complexes between Photosystem II and Photosystem I. State transitions in two cyanobacterial species are shown to be inhibited by buffers containing 0.2–0.4 M phosphate. Both the state 1 and the state 2 transition are inhibited, so that cells may be locked in the state to which they were adapted before the addition of… CONTINUE READING
