 Title    Blue Light-Enhanced Photosynthetic Oxygen Evolution from Liposome-Bound Photosystem II Particles; Possible Role of the Xanthophyll Cycle in the Regulation of Cyclic Electron Flow Around Photosystem II?  
 Abstract    Light-driven electron transport in liposom e-bound photosystem II (PS-II) particles be­ tween water and ferricyanide was monitored by bare platinum electrode oxymetry. The m odi­ fication of the experimental system with the exogenous quinones a-tocopherol quinone (a-TQ) or plastoquinone (PQ) resulted in a pronounced effect on photosynthetic oxygen evolution. The presence o f a-tocopherolquinone (a-T Q) in PS-II samples decreased the rate of red light-induced oxygen evolution but increased the rate o f green light-induced oxygen evolution. Blue light applied to the assay system in which oxygen evolution was saturated by red light resulted in a further increase o f the oxygen signal. These findings are interpreted in terms of a cyclic electron transport around PS-II, regulated by an excitation state of ß-carotene in the reaction centre of PS-II. A mechanism is postulated according to which energetic coupling of ß-carotene in the reaction centre of PS-II and that o f other antenna carotenoid pigments is regulated by the portion of the xanthophyll violaxanthin, which is under control of the xanthophyll cycle.
