Pea mutants are characterized by chlorophyll fluorescence detected with a Pulse-Amplitude-Modulated fluorometer, photosynthetic oxygen evolution measured with polarographic oxygen rate electrode and lipid composition of thylakoid membranes measured by thin layer and gas chromatography. The results suggested a specific role of anionic lipids in protection of photosynthetic apparatus to photoinhibition. Data revealed that the decrease in the anionic lipids, which correlates with an increase in the oligomeric forms of light-harvesting complexes of photosystem II (LHCII), lead to lower sensitivity of photosynthetic apparatus to high-light treatment.
