Leaf Isoprene Emission Rate Is Dependent on Leaf Development and the Level of Isoprene Synthase.

Abstract

Isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene) is a major volatile hydrocarbon produced by many plant species. Here we report that in velvet bean (Mucuna sp.), isoprene emission is strongly dependent on leaf developmental state and that changes in extractable isoprene synthase activity parallel isoprene emission rates during leaf development. Both leaf emission and… (More)
