Sažetak
In vascular plant photosynthesis several electron transport chains have been recognized. Linear electron transport chain (LET) transfers electrons generated by photosystems II and I to a small iron-sulphur protein ferredoxin (Fd). Fd acts simultaneously as a bottleneck and as a hub which distributes high-energy electrons to a multitude of enzymes. The dominant pathway in chloroplasts is, however, the one that produces NADPH, by the activity of ferredoxin-NADP+-oxidoreductase (FNR). FNR is a soluble protein that exists in several isoforms and utilizes two reduced Fds to produce one molecule of NADPH. In order to function efficiently Fd/FNR redox chemistry has to be constantly poised. The question remains how is the partitioning of electrons between various energy-conserving and -dissipating pathways achieved. We have previously shown that thylakoid rhodanase-like protein TROL acts as a bona fide membrane attachment point for the FNR, although other associations with thylakoid and inner envelope membranes have been described. We have proposed a scheme for the dynamic FNR recruitment to TROL. We posit that TROL-FNR interaction represents branching point between electron-conserving and electron-dissipating pathways. Without the TROL, light-dependent O2.- generation is reduced, while the generation of other ROS is enhanced. We propose that other Fd-dependent pathways downstream of PSI and different from the linear electron transfer become dominant by the dynamic detachment of FNR form TROL, thus suggesting a novel mechanism of photosynthesis regulation. Alternatively, efficient scavenging of O2.- by FNR-dependent pathways can be envisaged.
