Importantly, pgr5 is more efficient in oxidation of P700 in low light than in high light (Figure 1). 1 A). The pigment is called chlorophyll and comes in two forms – chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b. It is not fully understood how the regulation of trans-thylakoid ΔpH actually occurs according to the light intensity and the energetic state of the chloroplast. Saturating pulse was applied in every 1 min with gradually increasing actinic light intensity (50, 127, 274, 661, and 1595 μmol photons m-2 s-1). Increase in light intensity enhances ΔpH in WT and npq4 but not in pgr5. Regulating the proton budget of higher plant photosynthesis. It is known that PGR5 increases the resistance against proton translocation from thylakoid lumen to chloroplast stroma (Avenson et al., 2005). Four major protein complexes are located in the thylakoid membrane: Photosystem II (PSII), Cytochrome b6f complex, Photosystem I (PSI), and ATP synthase that works together in carrying out the light reaction in plants.

This energy is used to move hydrogen atoms from the stromal side of the membrane to the thylakoid lumen. Mol. Photosynth. It is named so because the electrons flow in a single direction and, after losing from PSII, do not return to the same photosystem. radioactive ATP radioactive sulfur radioactive CO2 radioactive glucose. doi: 10.1038/nature09066, DalCorso, G., Pesaresi, P., Masiero, S., Aseeva, E., Schünemann, D., Finazzi, G., et al. When increasing the actinic light intensity stepwise, the npq4 mutant showed a higher oxidation level of P700 at moderate high light intensities (274 and 661 μmol photons m-2 s-1), whereas no difference between npq4 and WT was detected at lower or higher intensities (Figure 1A). The electrons released from photosystem II enter a chain of proteins known as electron transport chain (ETC). Although the fluorescence normalized to the maximal fluorescence does not linearly correlate with [QA-] due to the antenna connectivity (Lavergne and Trissl, 1995; Joliot and Joliot, 2003), the parameter F′/Fm is the best parameter for the mutants with severely altered behaviour of both Fm′ and F′. Biophys. The free energy associated with the exergonic redox reaction is coupled to the endergonic transport of protons from the stromal side of the membrane to the thylakoid lumen. The electrons from water are excited by light protons at PSII and move through the electron transport train until they react with an enzyme to form NADPH which is used in the Calvin cycle to react with carbon molecules from CO2 and later, from G3P. In pgr5, P700 oxidized slightly during the low actinic light intensities (50 and 127 μmol photons m-2 s-1), but remained reduced under higher intensities (Figure 1A) and throughout the drastic increase of actinic light intensity (Figure 2A). 2H2O + 2NADP+ + 3ADP + 3Pi → O2 + 2NADPH + 3ATP. Protons then diffuse through ATP synthase, which creates potential energy for ATP synthase to combine ADP and Pi to form ATP. The process results in making NADPH electrons that are removed from the inside and passed through PSII and PSI before ending up in NADPH. It is worth noting here that opposite to the independence between NPQ and oxidation of PSI, already a moderate photoinhibition of PSII leads to selective down-regulation of PSII and consequent oxidation of PSI (P700; Tikkanen et al., 2014). doi: 10.1515/znb-1969-1219, Suorsa, M., Jarvi, S., Grieco, M., Nurmi, M., Pietrzykowska, M., Rantala, M., et al. This process allows the absorption of another photon by the PSI antenna pigments. Article was last reviewed on Saturday, January 9, 2021, Your email address will not be published. Photophosphorylation is a process in which electrons are passed via both the photosystems after removing from the water.

Klughammer, C., and Schreiber, U. Chlorophyll a fluorescence and signal from oxidized P700 (Klughammer and Schreiber, 1994, 2008) were detected with Dual-PAM-100 (Heinz Walz). Therefore, it is also known as P700.

In the npq4 mutant, with low NPQ but normal photosynthetic control, high light leads to high reduction of PQ pool, and enhanced oxidation of PC and PSI. Sci. They move from PSII to a small lipid-soluble molecule, plastoquinone (Pq), and then to a protein complex called cytochrome b6f. Relative reduction of QA (F′/Fm) was determined by normalizing the fluorescence under actinic light (F′) to the maximal fluorescence of dark-adapted leaf (Fm). Comparison of WT and stn7 with respect to the reduction state of the electron transfer chain, as affected by both the induction and relaxation of NPQ, revealed two distinct phenomena. The other 5 G3P molecules are used to produce RuBP. doi: 10.1016/S0006-3495(95)80429-7, Li, X. P., Bjorkman, O., Shih, C., Grossman, A. R., Rosenquist, M., Jansson, S., and Niyogi, K. K.

C3 AND C4 ANATOMICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL PATHWAYS: Max. Instead, the results presented here are in line with our recent suggestion that both PSII and PSI function under the same light harvesting machinery regulated by ΔpH and the PSBS protein (Tikkanen and Aro, 2014; Grieco et al., 2015). Cell 110, 361–371. FIGURE 1. Induction of NPQ (1–Fm′/Fm) was calculated by reversing the maximal fluorescence from a light-adapted leaf (Fm′) normalized to the maximal fluorescence of a dark-adapted leaf (Fm). The light-dependent reaction takes place within specialized membrane discs of the chloroplast, known as thylakoid. The light energy is trapped by a pigment in the chloroplast and converted into chemical energy. doi: 10.1016/j.bbabio.2015.03.004, Grieco, M., Tikkanen, M., Paakkarinen, V., Kangasjarvi, S., and Aro, E. M. (2012). Chlorophyll a fluorescence was detected with 460-nm measuring light (19 μmol photons m-2 s-1) and oxidation state of P700 was determined based on the difference of intensities 875 nm and 830 nm of pulse-modulated measuring light reaching the photodetector (Klughammer and Schreiber, 2008). The function of the light-dependent reaction is to convert light energy into chemical energy within a multi-protein complex called the photosystem, found in the thylakoid membranes. The differential reduction pattern of pgr5 and npq4 recurred during the steep increase of actinic light intensity (Figure 2B). Thus, ΔpH is eventually determined by the ratio between the ΔpH generation and release mechanisms according to the energetic state of the chloroplast (Kanazawa and Kramer, 2002; Kohzuma et al., 2013). To this end, the two NPQ mutants pgr5 and npq4, the latter lacking the PSBS protein, were characterized. A saturating pulse (5000 μmol photons m-2 s-1 for 500 ms) was applied in every 1 min with increasing 635-nm actinic light (50, 127, 274, 661, and 1595 μmol photons m-2 s-1 or 127 and 1953 μmol photons m-2 s-1). Photons absorbed by Photosystem II (PSII) are used to oxidize water in the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) connected to PSII. 152, 723–735. 49, 1688–1698. The mechanisms involved in such a regulation of electron flow have, however, remained elusive. Res. PSI was the first photosystem to be discovered and absorbs maximum light of wavelength 700 nm. Similar to bacterial and mitochondrial complex I (Efremov et al., 2010), a transfer of electron is coupled with translocation of four protons into thylakoid lumen via the NDH-1 complex (For a review: Battchikova et al., 2011; Kramer and Evans, 2011). As electrons move through the proteins that reside between PSII and PSI, they lose energy. Trends Plant Sci. doi: 10.1016/j.bbabio.2013.10.001, Wientjes, E., van Amerongen, H., and Croce, R. (2013). Articles. Second, in the stn7 plants, the relaxation of NPQ leads to reduction of the PQ pool (Tikkanen et al., 2010; Grieco et al., 2012). The two hydrogen atoms lose two electrons producing H+ ions in the thylakoid lumen of the chloroplast. Limitation of electron flow to PSI upon increase in light intensity has been shown to be crucial for protection of PSI against photodamage (Munekage et al., 2002; Suorsa et al., 2012). Here, the electrons are first transferred to an iron-containing protein called ferredoxin (Fd) and then to a reducing agent, NADP, to form NADPH. CO2. Quantitative treatment of the function of plastoquinone in phostosynthesis. Taken together, it can be concluded that when the excitation energy distribution from the LHCII system to PSII and PSI is in balance, NPQ does not change the relative capacity of PSII and PSI electron transfer (Tikkanen et al., 2011). Leaves from 5-weeks-old plants were used for the experiments. Diagram the flow of electrons through PSI to illustrate why it has this name. Electron transfer from PSII to PSI takes place via the intersystem electron transfer chain composed of Plastoquinone (PQ), Cytochrome b 6 f (Cyt b 6 f), and Plastocyanin (PC). The process results in making NADPH electrons that are removed from the inside and passed through PSII and PSI before ending up in NADPH. The noncyclic pathway begins with PSII; electrons move from H2O through PS II to PS I and then on to NADP+. The reaction center of PSII (called P680) delivers its high-energy electrons, one at a time, to a primary electron acceptor called pheophytin (Ph), and then sequentially to two bound plastoquinones Q A and Q B. doi: 10.1016/j.molcel.2012.11.030, Joliot, P., and Johnson, G. N. (2011). Plant Physiol. Show where oxygen is involved in this pathway. Those hydrogen atoms, plus the ones produced by splitting water, accumulate in the thylakoid lumen and will be used synthesize ATP in a later step. Processes of the Light-Dependent Reactions –. 99, 155–160. 155, 170–178. This component of NPQ is called qE, which is nearly exclusively responsible for induction of NPQ upon increase in light intensity. Biochim. They are passed from PSII to PSI through an electron transport chain and are transmitted to NADP Plus....NADPH. Plant Physiol. (1994). U.S.A. 102, 9709–9713.

The steep increase in actinic light intensity, on the other hand, resulted in more substantial difference in the oxidation of P700 between npq4 and WT (Figure 2A). In addition to the slower induction, both mutants showed an impaired relaxation of NPQ during the subsequent phase of darkness (Figure 2C). 2) PSII to PSI The first set of electrons from PSII move along the ETC towards PSI, releasing energy as they move. PSII is a complicated structure with many polypeptide chains, lots of chlorophylls, and Mn, Ca, and Fe ions. Photosystem I is a plastocyanin-ferredoxin oxidoreductase which uses light energy to transfer an electron from the donor P700 chlorophyll pair to the electron acceptors A0, A1, FX, FA and FB in turn. The extracted electrons are passed on to Photosystem I (PSI) via the plastoquinone (PQ) pool, the cytochrome b 6 f complex (Cyt b 6 f) and the luminal electron transfer proteins plastocyanin (PC) or cytochrome c 6 (Cyt c 6). (2014). PSI can also function independently in a cyclic electron transport pathway to generate ATP. ... the path of electrons between PSII and cytochrome b6f the use of H2O as an electron source ... Bacteria may exchange genetic information through the development of cytoplasmic connections. Detached leaves were incubated in darkness 10 min before measurements. Thylakoid protein phosphorylation in higher plant chloroplasts optimizes electron transfer under fluctuating light. Proc. Because the lifetime of Q− A can be exten-sive, it appears that the QA binding site is efficiently insulated, and electrons are usually not lost to alternative oxidizing path … This clearly demonstrates that the control of electron flow from PSII to PSI cannot be assigned, even partially, to the down-regulation of PSII by NPQ but apparently takes place solely in Cyt b6f. 49, 511–523. Light-harvesting II antenna trimers connect energetically the entire photosynthetic machinery - including both photosystems II and I. Biochim. Biophys. Copyright © 2015 Tikkanen, Rantala and Aro. Here we asked whether NPQ really is a component of such regulation of electron flow from PSII to PSI at high light. First, the redox state of the PQ pool in WT remains relatively stable despite the induction or relaxation of NPQ. How is this energy used to synthesize NADPH? doi: 10.1038/291025a0, Avenson, T. J., Cruz, J. PSI is also known as a plastocyanin-ferredoxin oxidoreductase. No. A., Kanazawa, A., and Kramer, D. M. (2005). Due to the impaired control of electron transfer via Cyt b6f and low thermal dissipation of excess excitation energy, PSI of the pgr5 mutant is sensitive for photoinhibition and has reduced amount of PSI (Munekage et al., 2002). (Carbs and Air.) This means that when electrons are moved, hydrogen ions move too. 16, 126–131. *Correspondence: Eva-Mari Aro and Mikko Tikkanen, Molecular Plant Biology, Department of Biochemistry, University of Turku, Turku 20014, Finland, evaaro@utu.fi; misati@utu.fi, Front. Electrons from water are moved through PSII to a mobile, hydrophobic molecule, plastaquinone (PQ) to form its reduced form, PQH 2. U.S.A. 108, 13317–13322. doi: 10.1016/S0092-8674(02)00867-X, Murata, N. (2009). Redox state of PSI was determined by normalizing the signal of oxidized P700 to the signal of maximal proportion of oxidized P700 (P/Pm). A transmembrane protein called ATP synthase helps the H+ ions to return to the stroma, producing ATP from ADP + Pi. Wild type (ecotype Columbia) and mutant lines pgr5 (Munekage et al., 2002) and npq4 (Li et al., 2000) of Arabidopsis thaliana were grown at 23°C and in 60% relative humidity under an 8-h photoperiod of constant white light (110–120 μmol photons m-2 s-1) with OSRAM PowerStar HQIT 400/D Metal Halide lamps as a light source. Photosystem I releases electrons, which results in the formation of an NADPH molecule. Trends Plant Sci. There are two types of photosystems found in most plants: photosystem I (PSI) and photosystem II (PSII). By moving step-by-step through these, electrons are moved in a specific direction across a membrane. Nature 291, 25–29. Schematic model presenting the redox state of electron transfer chain in WT and in npq4 and pgr5 mutants in growth light and in high light. At the reaction center of photosystem I (PSI) is a chlorophyll a molecule called P700. Carbohydrate and Oxygen. Acad. Quickly memorize the terms, phrases and much more. (A)(P/Pm), (B) (F′/Fm), (C) (1–Fm′/Fm) in wild type (black dots), pgr5 (blue dots), and npq4 (purple dots) during a stepwise increase in actinic light intensity. Describe the path of an electron from a molecule of water to the sugar G3P. Oxidation of P700 is, however, lost when the actinic light exceeds the intensity of growth light. No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms. On the contrary, the oxidation of P700 at high light is even enhanced in the npq4 mutant as compared to wild type (WT), indicating that in the absence of PSBS-dependent NPQ the excitation energy transfer to PSI is enhanced. Introduction Plants and other photosynthetic organisms are experts at collecting solar energy, thanks to the light-absorbing pigment molecules in their leaves. Proton Gradient regulation5-like1-mediated cyclic electron flow is crucial for acclimation to anoxia and complementary to non-photochemical quenching in stress adaptation. Plant Sci., 08 July 2015 The additional ΔpH generated by NDH-1-CET may increase the resistance against LET via Cyt b6f, leading to enhanced oxidation of P700 in pgr5 in low light. The electron transfer reactions in Cyt b6f are coupled to transfer of protons from chloroplast stroma to thylakoid lumen (Q cycle). To evaluate electron donors to photosystem I (PSI) and possible path-ways of cyclic electron flow (CEF1) in isolated bundle sheath strands of maize (Zea mays L.), an NADP-ME species, light-induced redox kinetics of the reaction center chlorophyll of PSI (P700) were followed under aerobic conditions. 76, 241–245. As the name suggests, the light-dependent reaction needs light to proceed and cannot occur in darkness. Safe and efficient function of the photosynthetic light reactions is based on synchronized function of the light-driven enzymes photosystem II (PSII) and photosystem I (PSI), the former splitting water to protons and electrons and the latter using electrons to reduce NADP to NADPH. PI occurs if the rate of D1 damage exceeds the rate of replacement, leading to loss of photosynthetic viability. FIGURE 2. Plant Phys. The replacement of the electron enables chlorophyll to respond to another photon. Acad. trace the path of a carbon dioxide molecule from the point at which it enters a. Trace the path of electrons during the light reactions. (2010). On the other hand, the pgr5 mutant is not only deficient in induction of strong NPQ but it also lacks the capability to oxidize P700 upon increase in light intensity. Therefore, we assume that there is a still uncharacterized PGR5-dependent mechanism that controls proton translocation across the thylakoid membrane and allows synchronized induction of NPQ together with Cyt b6f-dependent mechanism to control electron flow to PSI. Whatever the mechanism, it is clear that the pgr5 mutant cannot increase the trans-thylakoid ΔpH and consequently fails in the PSBS protein-dependent thermal dissipation of excess excitation energy (NPQ) upon increase in light intensity (Munekage et al., 2002; Suorsa et al., 2012). The electrons are finally transferred to a copper-containing protein called plastocyanin (Pc) before being accepted by PSI. doi: 10.1104/pp.112.206466, Hertle, A. P., Blunder, T., Wunder, T., Pesaresi, P., Pribil, M., Armbruster, U., et al. Moreover, it is shown that the pgr5 mutant can induce NPQ in very high light, but still remains deficient in P700 oxidation. doi: 10.1023/A:1024908829819, Kanazawa, A., and Kramer, D. M. (2002). This results from the incapability to slow down the Cyt b6f rather than from the low level of NPQ. Plant Sci. Plant Cell Physiol. U.S.A. 99, 12789–12794. Further support to this conclusion is provided by experiments (Tikkanen et al., 2010; Grieco et al., 2012) conducted with the stn7 mutant deficient in excitation energy transfer to PSI. Chem. Nevertheless, when the increase in light intensity is strong enough, the pgr5 mutant can induce a reasonably high NPQ that in WT occurs concomitantly with oxidation of P700 (Figure 2A). Acad. doi: 10.1104/pp.109.150250, Tikkanen, M., Mekala, N. R., and Aro, E. M. (2014). Biochim. Nature 65, 441–445. A pigment-binding protein essential for regulation of photosynthetic light harvesting. doi: 10.1093/pcp/pcn140, Munekage, Y., Hojo, M., Meurer, J., Endo, T., Tasaka, M., and Shikanai, T. (2002). Proton gradient regulation5 is essential for proper acclimation of Arabidopsis photosystem I to naturally and artificially fluctuating light conditions. This model, however, is paradoxical since it states that the slowdown of electron transfer (occurring in the Cyt b6f complex) results from acceleration of electron transfer via Cyt b6f complex (in CET). As electrons move through the proteins that reside between PSII and PSI, they take part in exergonic redox transfers. Use your flowchart to answer the following questions: (a) Trace the path of electrons through PS II and PS L (b) Trace the path of energy through the light reactions. The electron in chlorophyll a molecule, present within the reaction center, is excited and released to the next carrier protein for transport on absorbing a photon. The transport of electrons through PSII, cytochrome complex, and to PSI creates a proton gradient. FIGURE 3. Though the two photosystems in the light-dependent reactions got their name in the series, they were discovered, but the photosystem II (PS II) comes first in the path in the electron flow and then the photosystem I (PSI). Plant Physiol. Based on this paradox, it has also been proposed that PGR5 simply prevents the leaking of protons from the lumen to chloroplast stroma by a still uncharacterized mechanism (Avenson et al., 2005). J. Biol. In growth light or light intensities below the growth light, WT, npq4, and pgr5 can keep the intersystem electron transfer chain optimally oxidized. 4. The PS II pigment complex absorbs solar energy; high-energy electrons (e-) leave the reaction-center chlorophyll a molecule. Plastoquinol shuttles electrons from PSII to cytochrome b6-f complex. Chloroplast protein phosphorylation couples plastoquinone redox state to distribution of excitation energy between photosystems. – Electrons begin at PSII and eventually transfer to NADPH – Linear process produces ATP and NADPH in equal amounts • Cyclic photophosphorylation – Electron cycling releases energy to transport H + into lumen driving synthesis of ATP – PSI electrons excited, release energy and transfer to NADPH – Linear process produces ATP and NADPH in equal amounts • Opin. Traditionally, the PGR5 protein is linked to the cyclic electron flow around PSI (CET) via putative Ferredoxin (FD) -PQ oxidoreductase (FQR; Munekage et al., 2002). A complex containing PGRL1 and PGR5 is involved in the switch between linear and cyclic electron flow in Arabidopsis. Plants absorb energy from the sun during photosynthesis. Photosystem II photoinhibition-repair cycle protects Photosystem I from irreversible damage. It was shown that the two mechanisms are complementary, both of them being needed for high light acclimation in oxygen limiting conditions. Generally, NPQ is considered as a mechanism that specifically down-regulates the activity of PSII and therefore is supposed to limit electron transfer to PSI. This difference, however, decreases at extremely high light (Figure 1A), indicating that when the light intensity is strong enough, the capacity of PSBS-dependent quenching mechanism to limit excitation pressure becomes saturated.

The architecture of respiratory complex I. |, Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY), Molecular Plant Biology, Department of Biochemistry, University of Turku, Turku, Finland. The path of electrons from water through PSII and PSI and ultimately to NADPH is also known as the _____ photophosphorylation. A photon of light strikes the antenna of photosystem II (PSII) and reaches the reaction center. Efficiency of the LHCII system, in turn, is regulated by ΔpH and is dependent on the PSBS protein (Li et al., 2000; Niyogi and Truong, 2013). PGR5 is involved in cyclic electron flow around photosystem I and is essential for photoprotection in Arabidopsis. The following table compares and contrasts light-dependent and independent reactions. Biophys. It is conceivable that the PGR5-PGRL1 complex senses the redox state of PSI electron acceptors and accordingly exerts feedback-regulation on photosynthetic light reactions, by tuning the resistance of proton translocation via ATP synthase by a mechanism that remains to be characterized. The discovery of state transitions in photosynthesis 40 years ago. Nature 403, 391–395. Light harvesting leads to linear electron transport through photosystems PSI and PSII. Study Flashcards On Biochemistry ch. Theory of fluorescence induction in photosystem II: derivation of analytical expressions in a model including exciton-radical-pair equilibrium and restricted energy transfer between photosynthetic units. PSII and PSI are two major components of the photosynthetic electron transport chain, which also includes the cytochrome complex. Moreover, the fact that oxidation of P700 is facilitated in the npq4 mutant indicates that in the absence of the PSBS protein, PSI has more excitation energy to oxidize P700 as compared to WT. Trace the movement of electrons in cyclic electron flow. In vivo modulation of nonphotochemical exciton quenching (NPQ) by regulation of the chloroplast ATP synthase. For example, plants use sunlight to prepare their food through photosynthesis, which is discussed in this article. This indicates that in the absence of PSBS protein-dependent NPQ, the photochemical capacity of the both photosystems in improved. The oxygen gas exits the leaf through the stomata and is released into the environment. In addition, npq4 reached a still higher level of F′/Fm than pgr5 at the high light intensities (661, 1595 μmol photons m-2 s-1), during which the QA begun to return to its oxidized state (Figure 1B).
