Melatonin is a ubiquitous indol molecule and has powerful functions in relieving abiotic stress responses. In our study, we used the kiwifruit seedlings as the materials and investigated the efficiency of different concentration melatonin (50 μM, 100 μM and 200 μM) on protect photosynthesis compared with control under low light. The results indicated that each concentration of melatonin significantly alleviated the degradation of chlorophyll and carotenoid and had no significant difference. Attributing to the preservation of chlorophyll by melatonin, the melatonin application groups accumulated more soluble sugar, soluble protein and proline than control group. In general, combining the results of photosynthetic pigment, photosynthate and proline, 200 μM of melatonin had the mostly significant effect on protecting photosynthesis.
