Abstract 1. 1. Studies employing oxygen isotopes have shown that the stoichiometry of the consumption and production of oxygen by illuminated chloroplasts is that proposed by Mehler. Oxygen is reduced to hydrogen peroxide with a concurrent production of half as much oxygen originating from water. The reduction of oxygen in the Mehler reaction is thus analogous to the reduction of conventional chloroplast reagents such as quinone. 2. 2. Spinach chloroplast preparations normally do not reduce… CONTINUE READING
