Cyclic electron flow (CEF) and ascorbate pathway activity provide constitutive photoprotection for the photopsychrophile, Chlamydomonas sp. UWO 241 (renamed Chlamydomonas priscuii) - Photosynthesis Research
In an article published in Photosynthesis Research, Sarah Stahl-Rommel et al report that cyclic electron flow & ascorbate pathway activity provide constitutive photoprotection for Chlamydomonas sp. UWO 241.
They also propose to rename this organism Chlamydomonas priscuii.

Under environmental stress, plants and algae employ a variety of strategies to protect the photosynthetic apparatus and maintain photostasis. To date, most studies on stress acclimation have focused on model organisms which possess limited to no tolerance to stressful extremes. We studied the abilit...
