The ammonium induction of the chloroplast-localized NADP-specific glutamate dehydrogenase (NADP-GDH) was shown not to be a light-dependent process per se in Chlorella sorokiniana. In the dark without exogenous organic substrates, the cells synthesized low levels of fully active NADP-GDH, provided endogenous starch reserves had not been depleted. When cells were supplied with exogenous acetate, the rate of induction of NADP-GDH activity per milliliter of culture in the dark was equal to or… CONTINUE READING
