High-level expression of maize phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase in transgenic rice plants
Using an Agrobacterium-mediated transformation system, we have introduced the intact gene of maize phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC), which catalyzes the initial fixation of atmospheric CO2 inExpand
5 – Biochemistry of C3–C4 Intermediates
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the biochemistry of C3–C4 intermediates. The reductive pentose phosphate pathway, or PCR cycle, is the means through which higher plants assimilate CO2.Expand
Photosynthetic acclimation of maize to growth under elevated levels of carbon dioxide
Abstract. The effects of elevated CO2 concentrations on the photochemistry, biochemistry and physiology of C4 photosynthesis were studied in maize (Zea mays L.). Plants were grown at ambient (350 μLExpand
Characterizing Regulatory and Functional Differentiation between Maize Mesophyll and Bundle Sheath Cells by Transcriptomic Analysis1[W][OA]
To study the regulatory and functional differentiation between the mesophyll (M) and bundle sheath (BS) cells of maize (Zea mays), we isolated large quantities of highly homogeneous M and BS cellsExpand
Features of Photosynthesis in Haloxylon species of Chenopodiaceae that are Dominant Plants in Central Asian Deserts
Vladimir I. Pyankov, Clanton C. Black Jr., Elena G. Artyusheva, Elena V. Voznesenskaya, Maurice S.B. Ku and Gerald E. Edwards 1 Department of Plant Physiology, Urals State University, Lenin AvenueExpand
Significant Accumulation of C4-Specific Pyruvate, Orthophosphate Dikinase in a C3 Plant, Rice
The C4-Pdk gene encoding the C4 enzyme pyruvate, orthophosphate dikinase (PPDK) of maize (Zea mays cv Golden Cross Bantam) was introduced into the C3 plant, rice (Oryza sativa cv Kitaake). When theExpand
Photosynthetic characteristics and tolerance to photo-oxidation of transgenic rice expressing C4 photosynthesis enzymes
The photosynthetic characteristics of four transgenic rice lines over-expressing rice NADP-malic enzyme (ME), and maize phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PC), pyruvate,orthophosphate dikinase (PK),Expand
Photosynthetic performance of transgenic rice plants overexpressing maize C4 photosynthesis enzymes
Transgenic rice plants overexpressing maize C 4 -specific phospho enol pyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) exhibit a higher photosynthetic rate (up to 30%) and a more reduced O 2 inhibition of photosynthesisExpand
Salsola arbusculiformis, a C3–C4Intermediate in Salsoleae (Chenopodiaceae)
Salsola arbusculiformis is identified as a C 3 ‐C 4 intermediate species based on anatomical, biochemical and physiological characteristics. This is the first report of a naturally occurringExpand
Co-function of C3-and C4-photosynthetic pathways in C3, C4 and C3-C4 intermediate Flaveria species
The potential for C4 photosynthesis was investigated in five C3-C4 intermediate species, one C3 species, and one C4 species in the genus Flaveria, using 14CO2 pulse-12CO2 chase techniques andExpand
