In Chlamydomonas reinhardtii the synthesis of glutamate and aspartate during photosynthesis has been shown to be closely associated with the Krebs cycle (2). The addition of P-enolpyruvate but not pyruvate was found to enhance greatly the incorporation of "4CO2 in cell-free preparations of C. reinhardtii (3), suggesting that P-enolpyruvate carboxylase was important in CO2 fixation in this alga in replenishing Krebs cycle intermediates. One of the functions of P-enolpyruvate carboxylase is to… CONTINUE READING
