Glycine-accumulating mutants of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) and Amaranthus edulis (Speg.), which lack the ability to decarboxylate glycine by glycine decarboxylase (GDC; EC 2.1.2.10), were used to study the significance of an alternative photorespiratory pathway of serine formation. In the normal photorespiratory pathway, 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate is formed in the reaction catalysed by GDC and transferred to serine by serine hydroxymethyltransferase. In an alternative pathway, glyoxylate… CONTINUE READING
