Photosynthetic carbon reduction pathway is absent in chloroplasts of Vicia faba guard cells.

Four cell types from Vicia faba Linnaeus "Long Pod" leaflets were assayed for three enzymes unique to the photosynthetic carbon reduction pathway. The enzymes were ribulosebisphosphate carboxylase [3-phospho-D-glycerate carboxy-lyase (dimerizing), EC 4.1.1.39], phosphoribulokinase (ATP:D-ribulose-5-phosphate 1-phosphotransferase, EC 2.7.1.19), and… CONTINUE READING
