When grown at intermittent light regime, diatom alga Phaeodactylum tricornutum is able to form photoprotective non-photochemical chlorophyll fluorescence quenching (NPQ) three to five times larger than that observed in the higher plants. This quenching is sustained in the dark for 5 to 10 min, reverses completely within approximately 1 h and seems to be very tightly related to the presence of the zeaxanthin analogue, diatoxanthin. Addition of the uncoupler NH4Cl before illumination can… CONTINUE READING
