1993), there are four hypotheses to explain why plants become much more sensitive to photoinhibition at low temperatures: low temperatures can reduce photosynthetic capacity and therefore increase the probability of a surplus in stimulus of PS II; the restoration capacity of PS II is reduced at low temperatures (degradation and synthesis of protein D1 in the reaction centers seem to diminish); the capacity of the oxygen seizers
, which can provide protection against photoinhibition, decreases at low temperatures; and the ability to create zeaxanthin, which is capable of dissipating the excessive energy in the LHC II, may be inhibited at low temperatures.
