Abstract

Plastoquinone-9, α-tocopherol and phylloquinone are known as plastidic prenylquinones fulfilling important functions: Plastoquinone-9 acts as mobile electron and proton carrier in photosynthetic electron transport and is involved in building up the electrochemical proton potential at the chloroplast cytochrom b6/f complex /1, 2/. α-Tocopherol is involved in inactivating energized oxygen species, formed in the light, by scavenging radicals and quenching singlett oxygen /3/. Phylloquinone is known as obligatory constituent of PS I (K1 /chlorophyll of PS I ratio about 1: 100 /4/).
