Amino Acid uptake by pea leaf fragments: specificity, energy sources, and mechanism.


Amino acid uptake into leaf fragments of Pisum sativum depended on metabolism. Glycine uptake was optimal at 30 C and could be supported by respiration and by photosynthesis. Based on studies with an electron flow cofactor, inhibitors, and uncouplers, the energy source for glycine uptake was apparently ATP.The energy-dependent transport of glycine was… (More)
