Photosystem I (PSI), one of the two photosystems that drive electron transfer in oxygenic photosynthesis, is a very large pigment-protein complex with more than 100 cofactors. Crystal structure at 3.3 Å in higher plants, and that at 2.5 Å in cyanobacteria, gives us a detailed image of proteins and binding cofactors. However, most of the accumulated information is regarded as a snapshot of PSI. In spite of its general static image, components of PSI must be newly synthesized and assembled during initial synthesis, acclimation processes, and recovery from photoinhibition. Some factors required for such processes are common between higher plants, algae and cyanobacteria, but others are not. For the true comprehension of PSI, it is important to understand the dynamic nature of PSI including assembly or degradation. In this chapter, “four Ws and one H” of the PSI assembly are summarized.
