Characterization of high light acclimation capacity in Arabidopsis mutant candidates

  • In response to prevailing environmental conditions, Arabidopsis thaliana plants must increase their photosynthetic capacity to acclimate to potential harmful environmental high light stress. In order to measure these changes in acclimation capacity, different high throughput imaging-based methods can be used. In this master thesis we studied different Arabidopsis thaliana knockout mutants-and accessions in their capacity to acclimate to potential harmful environmental high light and cold temperature conditions using a high throughput phenotyping system with an integrated chlorophyll fluorescence measurement system. In order to determine the acclimation capacity, Arabidopsis thaliana knockout mutants of previously not high light assigned genes as well as accessions of two different haplotype groups with a reference and alternative allele from different countries of origin were grown under switching high light and temperature environmental conditions. Photosynthetic analysis showed that knockout mutant plants did differ in their Photosystem II operating efficiency during an increased light irradiance switch but did not significantly differ a week later under the same circumstances from the wildtype. High throughput phenotyping of haplotype accessions revealed significant better acclimation capacity in non-photochemical quenching and steady-state photosynthetic efficiency in Russian domiciled accessions with an altered SPPA gene during high light and cold stress.
