Light-dependent metabolism of carbon compounds by mesophyll chloroplasts from plants with the C4 pathway of photosynthesis



Light-dependent metabolism of carbon compounds by mesophyll chloroplasts from plants with the C4 pathway of photosynthesis



Australian Journal of Plant Physiology 1(1): 51-64



Illuminated chloroplasts of maize and Atriplex spongiosa converted pyruvate to phosphoenolpyruvate, but the initial rate was maintained only when either 3-phosphoglycerate or methylviologen was added. Light-dependent O2 evolution was observed when 3-phosphoglycerate or oxaloacetate was added to chloroplasts, and the concomitant production of dihydroxyacetone phosphate or malate was observed. The addition of ADP or NADP or both did not produce increases in these activities.
