Activities of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase and rates of photosynthetic O(2) evolution were measured in guard-cell and mesophyll protoplasts from Vicia faba. The ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase activity of guard-cell protoplasts was 30% of that of mesophyll protoplasts; however, the O(2) evolution rate was 3 times higher in guard-cell(More)
Activities of Calvin-Benson cycle enzymes were found in protoplasts of guard cells from Vicia faba L. The activities of NADP-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (NADP-GAPD) and ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase (RuBPC) were 2670 and 52 micromoles per milligrams chlorophyll per hour, respectively. Activities of NADP-GAPD and RuBPC in guard cells(More)
Phototropin (phot1) is a blue light-activated plasma membrane-associated kinase that acts as the principal photoreceptor for shoot phototropism in Arabidopsis in conjunction with the signalling component Non-Phototropic Hypocotyl 3 (NPH3). PHOT1 is uniformly expressed throughout the Arabidopsis hypocotyl, yet decapitation experiments have localized the site(More)
