Cell position and light influence C4 versus C3 patterns of photosynthetic gene expression in maize.
TLDR
It is proposed that light causes repression of RuBPCase expression in M cells, by a mechanism associated with the vascular system, and that this is an essential step in the induction of C4 photosynthesis. Expand
High Glycolate Oxidase Activity Is Required for Survival of Maize in Normal Air1[OA]
TLDR
It is shown that C4 photosynthesis in maize is dependent on photorespiration throughout seedling development and support the view that the carbon oxidation pathway evolved to prevent accumulation of toxic glycolate. Expand
Manipulation of catalase levels produces altered photosynthesis in transgenic tobacco plants.
TLDR
Photorespiratory losses of CO2 were significantly reduced with increasing catalase activities at 38 degrees C, indicating that the stoichiometry of photorespirational CO2 formation per glycolate oxidized normally increases at higher temperatures because of enhanced peroxidation. Expand
Leaf catalase mRNA and catalase-protein levels in a high-catalase tobacco mutant with o(2)-resistant photosynthesis.
TLDR
The results indicate that the enhancedCatalase activity in mutant leaves is caused by an increase in synthesis of catalase protein and that this trait is mediated at the nucleic acid level. Expand
The Close Relationship Between Net Photosynthesis and Crop Yield
TLDR
Increasing the rates of net photosynthesis and translocation and enlarging the storage capacity by selection and breeding may bring about large increases in yield, especially in C3 species. Expand
