Photoinhibition and Protection of Photosystem I

  • Kintake Sonoike
Part of the Advances in Photosynthesis and Respiration book series (AIPH, volume 24)


Photosystem I (PS I) had been believed to be stable under almost all kinds of environmental stresses, but research in the last 10 years has revealed that PS I is sensitive to photooxidative stress. When combined with low temperature stress, PS I is the main target of photoinhibition, which limits not only overall photosynthesis but also subsequent growth following the application of stress. The molecular mechanism of inhibition is being clarified, and the elucidation of the mechanism of protection from photoinhibition is in progress. Recent advances in the understanding of the photoinhibition of PS I will be discussed in connection with the protection mechanism from inhibition.
