The redox state of plastoquinone-pool in chloroplasts is crucial for driving many responses to variable environment, from short-term effects to those at the gene expression level. In the present studies, we showed for the first time that the plastoquinone-pool undergoes relatively fast oxidation during high light stress of low light-grown Arabidopsis plants. This oxidation was not caused by photoinhibition of photosystem II, but mainly by singlet oxygen generated in photosystem II and non-photochemical quenching in light harvesting complex antenna of the photosystem, as revealed in experiments with a singlet oxygen scavenger and with Arabidopsis npq4 mutant. The latter mechanism suppresses the influx of electrons to the plastoquinone-pool preventing its excessive reduction. The obtained results are of crucial importance in light of the function of the redox state of the plastoquinone-pool in triggering many high light-stimulated physiological responses of plants.
