Fermentative Metabolism of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: I. Analysis of Fermentative Products from Starch in Dark and Light.
The stoichiometry in the dark indicates that starch is degraded via the glycolytic pathway, and pyruvate is broken down into acetyl-CoA and formate, and Ethanol formation is inhibited by the light in all conditions. Expand
Fermentative Metabolism of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Evidence is presented to substantiate a chloroplastic respiratory pathway in the green alga, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, whereby reducing equivalents generated during the degradation of starch enterExpand
H(2) and CO(2) Evolution by Anaerobically Adapted Chlamydomonas reinhardtii F-60.
It was suggested that carbonyl cyanide m-fluorophenylhydrazone increased the rate of starch breakdown by making the chloroplast membrane permeable to H(+), removing a rate-limiting step, and leading to an altered fermentative pattern. Expand
Fermentative Metabolism of Chlamydomonas reinhardii: III. Photoassimilation of Acetate.
The results support the occurrence of anaerobic and light-dependent citric acid and glyoxylate cycles which affect the conversion of acetate to CO(2) and H(2), prior to its conversion to cellular material. Expand

THERE is considerable evidence indicating that the mechanisms of carbohydrate catabolism are the same in higher plants, yeast and muscle1. However, it has been reported that mature pea plants do notExpand
Nonreversible d-Glyceraldehyde 3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase of Plant Tissues.
In photosynthetic tissue, the enzyme is located outside the chloroplast, and at in vivo levels of triose-phosphates and pyridine nucleotides, the activity is probably greater than that of DPN-linked reversible d-glyceraldehyde 3-ph phosphate dehydrogenase. Expand
Cellular Fractionation of Chlamydomonas reinhardii with Emphasis on the Isolation of the Chloroplast.
Examination of the chloroplasts by electron microscopy and marker enzyme activities indicated some mitochondrial and cytoplasmic contamination. Expand
Alkaline C1-Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase
This chapter elaborates on C1-fructose-1,6-diphosphatase (FDPase) that was discovered by Gomori in rabbit muscle and how the presence of NADPH oxidase in plant tissues must be corrected for by a suitable control. Expand
