Compartmentation and fluxes of carbon in leaf blades and leaf sheaths of Poa annua L. and Poa X jemtlandica (Almq.) Richt



Compartmentation and fluxes of carbon in leaf blades and leaf sheaths of Poa annua L. and Poa X jemtlandica (Almq.) Richt



Plant, Cell and Environment 11(6): 535-545



The allocation of photosynthetically fixed carbon in the leaf blades and sheaths of Poa annua (a ruderal grass) and Poa x jemtlandica (a sub-arctic grass) was followed over a light-dark cycle. Labelling with 14Carbon and gas exchange measurements provide data for an eight-compartment model describing the partitioning of carbon between spatially and chemically separated pools and their rates of turnover. Soluble sugars and fructans were turned over rapidly in the leaf blades of both species. The flux of carbon through pools of storage carbohydrates was higher in the leaves of P. x jemtlandica than in P. annua. The exchange of carbon between pools was slower in the sheath than the blade. Carbohydrates stored in the sheath appeared to have no significant role in metabolism over the light-dark cycle studied here.
