The occurrence of rapidly reversible non-photochemical quenching of chlorophyll a fluorescence in cyanobacteria.

Abstract

Cyanobacteria have previously been considered to differ fundamentally from plants and algae in their regulation of light harvesting. We show here that in fact the ecologically important marine prochlorophyte, Prochlorococcus, is capable of forming rapidly reversible non-photochemical quenching of chlorophyll a fluorescence (NPQf or qE) as are freshwater… (More)
