ABSTRACT
The response of the photosynthetic apparatus in the green
alga Dunaliella salina, to irradiance stress was investigated. Cells
were grown under physiological conditions at 500 millimoles per
square meter per second (control) and under irradiance-stress
conditions at 1700 millimoles per square meter per second inci-
dent intensity (high light, HL). In control cells, the light-harvesting
antenna of photosystem I (PSI) contained 210 chlorophyll a/b
molecules. It was reduced to 105 chlorophyll a/b in HL-grown
