Photosynthesis in c(4) plant tissue cultures: significance of kranz anatomy to c(4) Acid metabolism in c(4) plants.

Abstract

The pattern of photosynthetic carbon metabolism was determined in tissue cultures of Portulaca oleracea. Four-carbon acids are the most heavily labeled photosynthetic products during short term exposure to (14)CO(2), containing greater than 40% of the total radioactivity incorporated. Phosphoglyceric acid and sugars account for only 10% of the label after… (More)
