  • Grana-Localized Proteins, RIQ1 and RIQ2, Affect the Organization of Light-Harvesting Complex II and Grana Stacking in Arabidopsis

    Abstract Grana are stacked thylakoid membrane structures in land plants that contain photosystem II (PSII) and light-harvesting complex II proteins (LHCIIs). We isolated two Arabidopsis mutants, reduced induction of non-photochemical quenching (riq1 and riq2), in which stacking of grana was enhanced. The curvature thylakoid 1a curt1a) mutant was previously shown to lack grana structure. ...

  • Who Needs Continuous Emissions Monitoring?

    Continuous emissions monitoring (CEM) is about monitoring air pollutants generated by a specific activity and emitted to the ambient air, typically through a tall stack or other exhaust pipe. The “activity” can be some industrial process like a power plant or a waste incinerator, but it can also be on a much smaller scale such as a car equipped with an internal-combustion engine. ...
