Abstract
The composition of the thylakoid proton motive force (pmf) is regulated by thylakoid ion transport. Passive ion channels in the thylakoid membrane dissipate the membrane potential (Δψ) component to allow for a higher fraction of pmf stored as a proton concentration gradient (ΔpH). K+/H+ antiport across the thylakoid membrane via K+ EXCHANGE ANTIPORTER3 (KEA3) instead reduces the ΔpH fraction of the pmf. Thereby, KEA3 decreases non-photochemical quenching (NPQ), thus allowing for higher light use efficiency, which is particularly important during transitions from high to low light. Here, we show that in the background of the Arabidopsis thaliana chloroplast (cp)ATP synthase assembly mutant cgl160, with decreased cpATP synthase activity and increased pmf amplitude, KEA3 plays an important role for photosynthesis and plant growth under steady state conditions. By comparing cgl160 single with cgl160 kea3 double mutants, we demonstrate that in the cgl160 background loss of KEA3 causes a strong growth penalty. This is due to a decreased photosynthetic capacity of cgl160 kea3 mutants, as these plants have a lower lumenal pH than cgl160 mutants, and thus show substantially increased pH-dependent NPQ and decreased electron transport through the cytochrome b6f complex. Overexpression of KEA3 in the cgl160 background decreases pH-dependent NPQ and increases photosystem II efficiency. Taken together, our data provide evidence that under conditions where cpATP synthase activity is low, a KEA3-dependent reduction of ΔpH benefits photosynthesis and growth.
