The conditions for plant growth, such as irradiance and temperature have been found to influence the structure of photosynthetic apparatus and its functional characteristics. As is known, the relative size of electron carrier pools in the electron transport chain and the pigment apparatus composition undergo a change due to low irradiance (1). The rate of linear electron transport decreases resulting thus in a decreased NADPH production (2). In chloroplasts of plants grown at high temperatures the disturbances occur in functions of the coupling apparatus leading to a decreased ATP production (3).
