Enzymic and substrate basis for the anaplerotic step in guard cells.

Abstract

From the maximum rate of malate accumulation in Vicia faba L. guard cells during stomatal opening the maximum rate of organic anion synthesis is calculated to be 200 millimoles per kilogram dry weight per hour. A minimum estimate for the phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) carboxylase-catalyzed reaction in guard cells is 650 millimoles per kilogram dry weight per… (More)
