Researchers ID Plant ‘Sunscreen’ Protein

A protein that protects plants from damage caused by too much light energy has been found. Plants with deficient levels of the lipocalin protein are less able to dissipate excess light energy. Researchers will explore how this energy dissipation process is turned on and off, and whether manipulation of light usage could lead to higher crop yields. More>
