In response to iron deficiency, cyanobacteria synthesize the iron stress-induced chlorophyll binding protein IsiA. This protein protects cyanobacterial cells against iron stress. It has been proposed that the protective role of IsiA is related to a blue light-induced nonphotochemical fluorescence quenching (NPQ) mechanism. In iron-replete cyanobacterial cell cultures, strong blue light is known to induce a mechanism that dissipates excess absorbed energy in the phycobilisome, the extramembranal… CONTINUE READING
