Name  Violaxanthin de-epoxidase Short Name  VDE
Type  Domain Description  This family represents a conserved region approximately 350 residues long within plant violaxanthin de-epoxidase (VDE). In higher plants, violaxanthin de-epoxidase forms part of a conserved system that dissipates excess energy as heat in the light-harvesting complexes of photosystem II (PSII), thus protecting them from photo-inhibitory damage [].
