AbstractPhotoinactivation kinetics of photosystem I (PSI)-mediated electron transport rate was compared to that of P700 content at room (22 °C) and low (4 °C) temperatures in isolated spinach thylakoid membranes. The high light treatment was carried out under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. At 22 °C the decrease of electron transport rate showed first order exponential kinetics. The amount of P700 decreased linearly, being less affected in the first hours of illumination. During photoinhibition at 4 °C in the presence of oxygen, the kinetics of inactivation of PSI photochemical activity and the content of P700 were different. It was found that 3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea (DCMU) had different protective effect on the electron transport rate and on P700 content at both temperatures. Treatment with high light intensity under N2 atmosphere had no effect on the electron transport rate or P700 content. The possible degradation of PSI reaction centre proteins was determined using immunoblot methods. In the presence of linear electron transport at 22 °C correlation between formation of toxic hydroxyl radicals and inhibition of oxygen uptake was observed.
