  1. Chlorophyll content per cell (Chl/cell) was set to 100% in the case of WT. The concentration of pigments in pmol was determined by HPLC and normalized to 100 pmol of chlorophyll a (Chl). Violaxanthin: vio, vaucheriaxanthin: vau, β-carotene: β-Car, antheraxanthin: anthera, zeaxanthin: zea, canthaxanthin: cantha. Standard deviations (s.d.) are reported for the different values (n = 5 for Chl/cell values, n = 3 for the other values). Significantly different values are marked with * if p < 0.05, as determined by unpaired two-sample t-test (n = 3)
