Exploiting the differential expression of genes for Calvin cycle enzymes in bundle-sheath and mesophyll cells of the C4 plant Sorghum bicolor L., we isolated via subtractive hybridization a molecular probe for the Calvin cycle enzyme d-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase (R5P3E) (EC 5.1.3.1), with the help of which several full-size cDNAs were isolated from spinach. Functional identity of the encoded mature subunit was shown by R5P3E activity found in affinity-purified glutatione S-transferase… Expand
Molecular characterization of transketolase (EC 2.2.1.1) active in the Calvin cycle of spinach chloroplasts
TLDR
Chloroplast TKL is the last of the demonstrably chloroplast-localized Calvin cycle enzymes to have been cloned and thus completes the isolation of gene probes for all enzymes of the pathway in higher plants. Expand
Microsequecing and cDNA cloning of the Calvin cycle/OPPP enzyme ribose-5-phosphate isomerase (EC 5.3.1.6) from spinach chloroplasts
TLDR
Molecular characterization of RPI supports the view that a single amphibolic RPI enzyme functions in the oxidative and reductive pentose phosphate pathways of spinach plastids. Expand
Higher-plant chloroplast and cytosolic fructose-1,6-bisphophosphatase isoenzymes: origins via duplication rather than prokaryote-eukaryote divergence
TLDR
FBP enzymes not only of higher plants but also of non-photosynthetic eukaryotes are found to be unexpectedly similar to eub bacterial homologues, suggesting a eubacterial origin of these eukARYotic nuclear genes. Expand
Structure, kinetic characterization and subcellular localization of the two ribulose 5-phosphate epimerase isoenzymes from Trypanosoma cruzi
TLDR
Over-expression of T cRPE1, but not of TcRPE2, significantly reduces the parasite doubling time in vitro, as compared with wild type epimastigotes, and is the first PPP isoenzyme that is exclusively localized in glycosomes. Expand
Structure and catalytic mechanism of the cytosolic D-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase from rice.
Cytosolic D-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase from rice was crystallized after EDTA treatment and structurally elucidated by X-ray diffraction to 1.9A resolution. A prominent Zn(2+) site at the activeExpand
Enzyme co-localization with transketolase, xylulose-5-P 3-epimerase and phosphoriboisomerase in pea leaf chloroplasts
TLDR
Spatial organization of these enzymes may be important for efficient carbon metabolism in photosynthetic organisms. Expand
The Plastidic Pentose Phosphate Translocator Represents a Link between the Cytosolic and the Plastidic Pentose Phosphate Pathways in Plants1
TLDR
It is assumed that the XPT function is to provide the plastidic pentose phosphate pathways with cytosolic carbon skeletons in the form of Xul-5-P, especially under conditions of a high demand for intermediates of the cycles. Expand
The ‘high’ concentrations of enzymes within the chloroplast
TLDR
Calculations suggest that there are several other enzymes of the photosynthetic carbon reduction cycle whose stromal concentrations could readily approach or exceed the concentrations of one or more of their substrates. Expand
Regulation of gene expression by low levels of ultraviolet-B radiation in Pisum sativum: isolation of novel genes by suppression subtractive hybridisation.
TLDR
Qualitatively, the similarity of expression after both UV-B and ozone exposure suggests that, for these genes, similar stress-response pathways are in action. Expand

A survey for isoenzymes of glucosephosphate isomerase, phosphoglucomutase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and 6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase in C3-, C4-and crassulacean-acid-metabolism plants, and green algae
TLDR
C4 plants have isoenzymes not only in two cell compartments, but also in physiologically closely linked cell types such as mesophyll and bundle-sheath cells, according to the results of isolation of cell organelles from spinach leaves. Expand
The Calvin cycle enzyme pentose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase is encoded within the cfx operons of the chemoautotroph Alcaligenes eutrophus
TLDR
Heterologous expression of the subcloned pHG1-encoded open reading frames in Escherichia coli suggested that they were functional genes, and agreed with the finding that in A. eutrophus, PPE activity is significantly enhanced under autotrophic growth conditions which lead to a derepression of the cfx operons. Expand
Molecular characterization of a novel, nuclear-encoded, NAD+-dependent glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase in plastids of the gymnosperm Pinus sylvestris L.
TLDR
It is found that the gymnosperm Pinus sylvestris possesses a nuclear-encoded, plastid-specific, NAD+-dependent GAPDH, designated GapCp, which has not previously been described from any plant, suggesting that aspects of compartmentalized sugar phosphate metabolism may differ in angiosperms and gymnosperms. Expand
Purification, characterization, and cDNA sequence of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase from potato (Solanum tuberosum L.).
TLDR
The lack of a plastidic signal sequence as well as the insensitivity of the recombinant enzyme towards reduced DTT, support the view that the cDNA sequence of a redox-independent cytosolic isoform was obtained. Expand
Identification, expression, and deduced primary structure of transketolase and other enzymes encoded within the form II CO2 fixation operon of Rhodobacter sphaeroides.
TLDR
This study represents the initial description of the primary structure of bacterial transketolase, a key enzyme of the reductive and the oxidative pentose phosphate pathways and may be expressed to high levels in Escherichia coli. Expand
Sequence of Mature Phosphoglycerate Kinase from Spinach Chloroplasts
TLDR
The predicted protein sequence of the spinach PGK shows considerable homology to both PGK isofonns from wheat, pointing toward a high degree of conservation of PGK sequences between monocotyledonous and dicotylingonous plants. Expand
Enzymatic Evidence for a Complete Oxidative Pentose Phosphate Pathway in Chloroplasts and an Incomplete Pathway in the Cytosol of Spinach Leaves
TLDR
The data indicate that chloroplasts of spinach leaf cells possess the complete complement of enzymes of the oxidative pentose phosphate path-way (OPPP), whereas the cytosol contains only the first two reactions, contrary to the widely held view that plants generally possess a cytosolic OPPP capable of cyclic function. Expand
Higher-plant chloroplast and cytosolic 3-phosphoglycerate kinases: a case of endosymbiotic gene replacement
TLDR
Evidence suggesting a eub bacterial origin of plant genes for PGK via endosymbiotic gene replacement indicates that plant nuclear genomes are more highly chimaeric, i.e. contain more genes of eubacterial origin, than is generally assumed. Expand
