Inhibition of the oxygen-evolving complex of photosystem II and depletion of extrinsic polypeptides by nickel

Abstract

The toxic effect of Ni2+ on photosynthetic electron transport was studied in a photosystem II submembrane fraction. It was shown that Ni2+ strongly inhibits oxygen evolution in the millimolar range of concentration. The inhibition was insensitive to NaCl but significantly decreased in the presence of CaCl2. Maximal chlorophyll fluorescence, together with… (More)
