Two photosystems, I and II, absorb and convert light energy in
photosynthesis in chloroplasts of green plants. The genes psbA and
psaAB of the cytoplasmic chloroplast genome encode core compo-
nents of photosystem II and photosystem I, respectively. Here we
show that the absolute amounts of photosystem I and photosystem
