Table 1 Basic characterization of plants grown in normal (N) or in low (L) light, or transferred to high (H) light for 6 h (N→H, L→H)

From: The link between transcript regulation and de novo protein synthesis in the retrograde high light acclimation response of Arabidopsis thaliana

Chlorophyll [mg/g fw] 1.22 ± 0.10a 1.15 ± 0.10a 0.75 ± 0.08b 0.80 ± 0.10b

  1. Contents of chlorophyll, protein and RNA were determined in leaf samples (n between 3 and 8 independent experiments, m ± SD; different letters mark significance groups according to t-test, p ≤ 0.05). Effective quantum yield of photosystem II as measured by pulse amplitude modulated chlorophyll fluorimetry is shown as m ± SD with n = 30 from 3 independent experiments. Letters mark groups of significant difference according to t-test, with p ≤ 0.01. Data are from [11].
