Illumination (22,000 lumens per meter(2)) of etiolated maize plants for 80 hours brings about a 5-fold increase in phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase activity per unit of protein. An increase in carboxylase protein and incorporation of [(35)S]methionine into the protein occurs simultaneously with the activity increase. In green plants, the level of… CONTINUE READING
