Plants not only evolve but also reduce oxygen in photosynthesis. Considerable oxygen uptake occurs during photorespiration of C3 plants. Controversies exist on whether direct oxygen reduction in the Mehler reaction together with associated electron transport is also a major sink of electrons when leaves are exposed to sunlight. Here, preference is given to the view that it is not. Whereas photorespiration consumes ATP, the Mehler reaction does not. In isolated chloroplasts photosynthesizing in… CONTINUE READING
