Photosynthetic and Carbohydrate Metabolism in Isolated Leaf Cells of Digitaria pentzii.

Abstract

Mesophyll cells and bundle sheath strands were isolated rapidly from leaves of the C(4) species Digitaria pentzii Stent. (slenderstem digitgrass) by a chopping and differential filtration technique. Rates of CO(2) fixation in the light by mesophyll and bundle sheath cells without added exogenous substrates were 6.3 and 54.2 micromoles of CO(2) per milligram… (More)
