Chlorophyll (Chl) molecules are essential for harvesting light energy in photosynthesis. A rice high-chlorophyll mutant (Gc) with significantly increased Chl b was identified previously in Zhenshan 97B (Oryza sativa indica). However, the mechanism underlying this higher Chl b content and its effects on photosynthetic efficiency are still unclear. Immunoblot… CONTINUE READING
