Evidence for Light-stimulated Synthesis of Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxylase in Leaves of Maize



Evidence for Light-stimulated Synthesis of Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxylase in Leaves of Maize



Plant Physiology 66(3): 505-509



Illumination (22 000 lm/m2) of etiolated maize plants for 80 h brought about a 5-fold increase in phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase activity/unit of protein. An increase in carboxylase protein and incorporation of 35S-methionine into the protein occurred simultaneously with the activity increase. In green plants, the level of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase protein and enzyme activity was dependent on the intensity of light during growth.
