Comparative studies on chloroplast development and photosynthetic activities in 3 carbon and 4 carbon plants 2. carbon di oxide fixation in barley hordeum vulgare and maize zea mays leaves



Comparative studies on chloroplast development and photosynthetic activities in 3 carbon and 4 carbon plants 2. carbon di oxide fixation in barley hordeum vulgare and maize zea mays leaves



Journal of the Faculty of Agriculture Kyushu University 24(1): 1-10



The fixation patterns of CO2 and chlorophyll accumulation following chloroplast development by illumination to etiolated leaves of barley and maize seedlings was investigated. CO2 fixation rate was increased after 3 h illumination in barley and maize leaves. These results were closely correlated with differentiation of grana and chlorophyll accumulation. At an early stage of chloroplast development in barley leaves, CO2 fixation patterns were not different from those in leaves cultured in a green house. In etiolated maize leaves illuminated for 3 h 14C was incorporated into aspartate at an early stage of chloroplast development and into malate at later stages of chloroplast development.
