Since activation of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase (rubisco) by rubisco activase is sensitive to ATP and ADP in vitro, we aimed to test the correlation between ATP level and rubisco activation state in intact leaves of Spinacia oleracea L. in response to changes in irradiance and after feeding the electron acceptor methyl viologen. Leaves were exposed to(More)
The authors investigated the effect of mood on food selection. Participants (N = 98) indicated the likelihood of general eating and the likelihood of eating specific foods after reading and projecting themselves onto the events and emotions described in a sad and a happy vignette. Both men and women believed they were more likely to consume food following a(More)
Previous reports indicate that ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) binds very tightly to inactive ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase (rubisco) in vitro. Therefore, we decided to investigate whether there was evidence for tight binding of RuBP associated with deactivation of rubisco in vivo. We modified a technique for rapidly separating ;free' metabolites from(More)
