In vivo (15)N nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) as well as (15)N solid-state magic angle spinning (MAS) NMR spectroscopy were used to investigate nitrogen metabolism in cultured white spruce (Picea glauca) buds. Long-term as well as short-term experiments were carried out involving the use of inhibitors of the nitrogen pathways such as methionine sulfoximine (MSO), azaserine (AZA) and aminooxyacetate (AOA). Both in vivo and solid-state NMR showed that when MSO blocked glutamine synthetase (GS… CONTINUE READING
