(13)C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of intact leaves of Kalanchoë tubiflora was used to observe Crassulacean acid metabolism in vivo. (13)C signals from C-4 of malate were observed after overnight exposure of leaves to (13)CO(2). Illumination of the labeled leaves resulted in a gradual decrease in the malate signals. After a period of darkness in normal air, (13)C signals were detected in all four carbons of malate in the previously labeled leaves. The (13)C nuclear magnetic resonance… CONTINUE READING
