Abstract. [...] Key Result In an alternative pathway, glyoxylate could be decarboxylated to formate and formate could be converted into 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate in the C1-tetrahydrofolate synthase pathway. In contrast to wild-type plants, the mutants showed a light-dependent accumulation of glyoxylate and formate, which was suppressed by elevated (0.7%) CO2 concentrations.Expand

Deletion of Glycine Decarboxylase in Arabidopsis Is Lethal under Nonphotorespiratory Conditions1[W][OA]
TLDR
This report reports on features of individual and combined T-DNA insertion mutants for one of the GDC subunits, P protein, which is encoded by two genes in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), and provides evidence for the nonreplaceable function of GDC in vital metabolic processes other than photorespiration. Expand
An engineered pathway for glyoxylate metabolism in tobacco plants aimed to avoid the release of ammonia in photorespiration
TLDR
The transgenic tobacco plants exhibit a stress response when exposed to air, suggesting that some glyoxylate is diverted away from conversion to glycine in a deleterious short-circuit of the photorespiratory nitrogen cycle. Expand
Genetic manipulation of glycine decarboxylation.
TLDR
From a comparison of the available information about the number and organization of GDC and SHMT genes in the genomes of Arabidopsis thaliana and Oryza sativa it appears that these and, possibly, other genes related to photorespiration, are similarly organized even in only very distantly related angiosperms. Expand
The role of photorespiration in redox and energy balance of photosynthetic plant cells: A study with a barley mutant deficient in glycine decarboxylase.
TLDR
It is concluded that photorespiration serves as an effective redox transfer mechanism from the chloroplast in plants with a lowered GDC content, which leads to over-reduction and over-energization of the chloroplasts. Expand
Peroxisomal Malate Dehydrogenase Is Not Essential for Photorespiration in Arabidopsis But Its Absence Causes an Increase in the Stoichiometry of Photorespiratory CO2 Release1[W][OA]
TLDR
PMDH is essential for maintaining optimal rates of photorespiration in air; however, in its absence, significant rates of photography are still possible, indicating that there are additional mechanisms for supplying reductant to the peroxisomal HPR Reaction or that the HPR reaction is altogether circumvented. Expand
Photorespiratory Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling: Evidence from Studies of Mutant and Transgenic Plants
TLDR
It is discussed how, in mutant plants in which the recycling of N is defective, the normal photorespiratory pathway involving glycine decarboxylation may be partially by-passed by a modified form of photorespiration involving glyoxylate decar boxylation. Expand
Profiling Chlamydomonas metabolism under dark, anoxic H2-producing conditions using a combined proteomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic approach.
TLDR
Novel routes for reductant utilization, in combination with redistribution of carbon and nitrogen, are used by this alga during acclimation to O2 deprivation in the dark. Expand
Investigating the regulation of one-carbon metabolism in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
It is concluded that FDH has no direct role in the regulation of the above two pathways of Ser synthesis; the breakdown of formate to CO(2) by the FDH reaction is the primary and preferred fate of the organic acid in Arabidopsis. Expand
Decarboxylation of glycine contributes to carbon isotope fractionation in photosynthetic organisms
TLDR
The measurement of δ13C in the leaves of the GDC-deficient barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) mutant (LaPr 87/30) plants indicated that photorespiratory carbon isotope fractionation takes place in vivo. Expand
Interaction between photorespiration and respiration in transgenic potato plants with antisense reduction in glycine decarboxylase
TLDR
The results support the view that respiratory decarboxylations in the light are restricted at the level of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and/or isocitrate dehydrationrogenase and that this effect is likely to be mediated by mitochondrial photorespiratory products. Expand

TLDR
The data suggests that photorespiration is an active process in C4 plants, which can play an important role in photosynthetic metabolism in these plants. Expand
Relationships between glycollate and formate metabolism in greening barley leaves
TLDR
The activities of enzymes catalysing glycollate oxidation, formate production and folate-dependent formate utilization were examined in the primary leaves of Hordeum vulgare cv Galt, finding that greened primary leaves incorporated [ 14 C]formate at rates that were three- to four-fold higher than shown by etiolated leaves. Expand
The nature of formate metabolism in greening barley leaves
TLDR
The involvement of tetrahydrofolate-dependent reactions in formate metabolism was indicated by inhibition of [ 14 C] and [ 3 H]formate incorporation by the folate antagonist, aminopterin. Expand
Photorespiratory mutants of the mitochondrial conversion of glycine to serine.
TLDR
The data suggested a mutation in a glycine transport system for LaPr 85/55 and in the proteins of glycine decarboxylase for La Pr 87/30, and suggest that genes for P and H proteins could be either coordinately regulated or that one protein is undetectable or unstable in the absence of the other.

Photorespiration-deficient Mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana Lacking Mitochondrial Serine Transhydroxymethylase Activity.
TLDR
The normal growth of the mutants under nonphotorespiratory atmospheric conditions indicates that mitochondrial serine transhydroxymethylase is not required in C(3) plants for any function unrelated to photorespiration, and it is suggested that glycine decarboxylation is the sole site of photorespiratories CO(2) release in wild-type plants.

TLDR
Using isolated soybean leaf cells as a model to determine the relationships between the glyoxylate concentration and rate of its decarboxylation indicated that about 2.5% of the photorespiratory CO(2) would arise from this reaction, which would not be expected to vary greatly with growth conditions.

TLDR
Spinach chloroplasts with their envelope membranes removed in dilute buffer solution have now been shown to carry out the oxidative decarboxylation of glyoxylate, in the presence of light and manganous ions in an atmosphere containing oxygen, to yield 1 mole each of 14CO2 and formate. Expand
Control of photosynthesis in barley plants with reduced activities of glycine decarboxylase
TLDR
It is concluded that GDC has no control over CO2 assimilation under normal growth conditions, but appreciable control by GDC becomes apparent under conditions leading to higher rates of photorespiration. Expand
The affinity of pea cotyledon 10-formyltetrahydrofolate synthetase for polyglutamate substrates
TLDR
The affinity of the purified synthetase for (6 S )-tetrahydrofolate polyglutamates increased with the degree of glutamyl conjugation of this substrate (apparent K m =40 μM and 3 μM for the mono- and pentaglutamate, respectively), and the affinities for formate and ATP were also enhanced by ( 6 S ), while the apparent K m values for ATP and formate declined.

TLDR
Competition within the mitochondria between the enzymes of dark respiration and glycine decarboxylation for limiting NAD may force substantial amounts of the glycolate formed to be decar boxylated by the direct oxidation of glyoxylate. Expand
