The D1 reaction centre protein of photosystem II (PSII), encoded by the plastid psbA gene, has the highest turnover rate of all thylakoid proteins, due to light-induced damage to D1. The expression of the psbA gene was studied in chloroplasts of fully developed pea (Pisum sativum L.) leaves during high-light photoinhibitory treatment and subsequent restoration of PSII function at low light. psbA transcript levels were determined and the translational activity was followed by in vivo pulse… CONTINUE READING
