biosynthesis of α-tocopherol and PQ ( Prysbilla et al., 1993 ). α-Tocopherol scavenges ROS that are detrimental to the thylakoid membrane ( Trebst et al., 2002 ). PQ transfers electrons from PS II to PS I reaction centers and is a cofactor in phytoene

directly inhibits the enzyme p -hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD; EC 1.13.11.27), a precursor to plastoquinone and tocopherols. The enzyme phytoene desaturase requires plastoquinone as a cofactor for converting phytoene to ζ-carotene, which
