Photodamage of Photosystem II (PSII) has been considered as an unavoidable and harmful reaction that decreases plant productivity. PSII, however, has an efficient and dynamically regulated repair machinery, and the PSII activity becomes inhibited only when the rate of damage exceeds the rate of repair. The speed of repair is strictly regulated according to the energetic state in the chloroplast. In contrast to PSII, Photosystem I (PSI) is very rarely damaged, but when occurring, the damage is… CONTINUE READING
