Under optimal growth conditions (120 micro mol photons m-2 sec-1 photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), 16-h photoperiod), the recessive ozone-sensitive Arabidopsis thaliana L. Heynh. mutant lcd1-1 exhibits a pale phenotype compared to the wild type. Confocal and multiphoton microscopy revealed that the paleness of lcd1-1 is because of a lower cell density in the leaf palisade parenchyma, resulting in decreased chlorophyll content. When exposed to ozone, lcd1-1 leaves become paler and… CONTINUE READING
