Inhibition of the photosynthetic capacity of isolated chloroplasts by ozone.


Isolated spinach chloroplasts have been used as a model system for studying the interaction of ozone, a component of photochemical smog, with plant membranes. Ozone bubbled into a suspension of isolated chloroplasts inhibits electron transport in both photosystems without uncoupling ATP production. Photosystem I (reduced 2,6-dichlorophenolindolphenol… (More)
