Heat stress: an overview of molecular responses in photosynthesis
In this review we summarize the recent progress in the studies of molecular mechanisms involved during moderate heat stress on the photosynthetic machinery, especially in photosystem II
The primary targets of thermal damage in plants are the oxygen evolving complex along with the associated cofactors in photosystem II, carbon fixation by Rubisco and the ATP generating system
Recent investigations on the combined action of moderate light intensity and heat stress suggest that moderately high temperatures do not cause serious PSII damage but inhibit the repair of PSII
Membrane linked sensors seem to trigger the accumulation of compatible solutes like glycinebetaine in the neighborhood of PSII membranes
In this review we summarize the recent progress in the studies of molecular mechanisms involved during moderate heat stress on the photosynthetic machinery, especially in PSII
