    We analyzed a unique non-photochemical quenching (NPQ) mechanism in the alga Chromera velia, a recently discovered close relative of apicomplexan parasites. NPQ in C. velia is enabled by an operative and fast violaxanthin de-epoxidation to zeaxanthin without accumulation of antheraxanthin. In C. velia violaxanthin also serves as a main light-harvesting pigment. Therefore, in C. velia violaxanthin acts as a key factor in both light harvesting and photoprotection. This is in contrast to a similar alga, Nannochloropsis limnetica, where violaxanthin has only light-harvesting function
