Abstracts
In the present study we aimed to investigate physiological and molecular mechanisms of photosynthetic performance decline in prematurely aged bleached leaves of silver maple (Acer saccharinum L.) trees. We used in vivo chlorophyll a fluorescence measurement
to analyze changes in PSII photochemistry, relative abundance of photosynthetic proteins (D1, LHCII, Cytf and Rubisco LSU), relations between chlorophylls and their precursor protochlorophyllide as well as elemental composition of the leaves. Decreases in Al, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Zn and an increase in S concentrations were found in bleached leaves in comparison to healthy green ones. The bleached leaves were visually expressing symptoms characteristic of Fe deficiency. Further, they had considerably decreased chlorophyll contents and
protochlorophyllide contents, overall photosynthetic activity and relative abundance of major photosynthetic proteins. All the results indicate that modifications in the molecular organization of photosynthetic electron-transport chain components in bleached leaves led to functional adaptation of the PSII achieved by modifications of some reaction centres (RCs), turning them from active to dissipative. This provided efficient adaptation of bleached leaves to high-light induced oxidative damage during summer.
