Arabidopsis thaliana plants lacking the PSI-H or PSI-L subunit of photosystem I have been shown to be severely affected in their ability to perform state transitions, but no visual phenotype was observed when these plants were grown under different light quantities and qualities. However, the chloroplasts in the PSI-H- and PSI-L-less plants contained fewer and more extended grana stacks. The plants lacking PSI-H or PSI-L were characterised with respect to their photosynthetic performance. Wild… CONTINUE READING
