Mass-spectrometric measurements of 18O exchange from 13C18O2 were used to follow changes in the intracellular carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity of cells of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Dang, wild type and the ca-1 mutant during adaptation to air. With intact cells as well as with crude homogenates total intracellular CA activity in wild-type cells increased six to tenfold within 4 h after transferring cells from 5% CO2 (high inorganic carbon, Ci) to ambient air (air adapted). After that time the… CONTINUE READING
