 Title    Photoinactivation of Photosystem II and Degradation of the D 1 Protein are Reduced in a Cytochrome b j f -Less Mutant of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii  
 Abstract    The effect of unoccupancy of the Q B site by plastoquinone on the photoinactivation of reac­ tion center II in a Cyt b jf-less mutant of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, Bb, was investigated. In these cells the oxidation of plastoquinol generated by electron flow via RC II to plastoquinone and thus the turnover of PQH2/PQ via the Q B site are drastically reduced. Reaction center II of the mutant cells was resistant to photoinactivation relative to the control cells as demonstrated by measurements of light-induced destabilization of S2-QB charge recombination, rise in in­ trinsic fluorescence and loss of variable fluorescence. These parameters relate to functions in­ volving the reaction center II D 1 protein. The light-induced degradation of D 1 in the mutant cells was also considerably reduced, with a ;l/ 2 value of 7 h as compared, under similar condi­ tions, to about 1.5 h for the control cells. These results indicate that the photoinactivation of RC II and turnover of the D 1 protein are related and require occupancy of the Q B site by PQ and its light-driven reduction.
