0946 09 1. The kinetics of 14CO2 incorporation into cellular intermediates was used to determine the primary pathway of carbon fixation by four genetically diverse unicellular blue-green algae. In each case label was first detected in 3-phosphoglycerate and then in compounds of the reductive pentose cycle. 2. A light to dark transition evoked the same response in all four strains: Immediate cessation of biosynthesis, rapid increase in the concentration of 6-phosphogluconate and changes in the… CONTINUE READING
