Phytochrome-mediated regulation of two mRNAs, encoded by nuclei and chloroplasts of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase.

Etiolated pea seedlings (5 days old) were treated with red light for 5 min and grown for 2 days more in darkness. Effects of the red light on the mRNA levels of two subunits of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (EC 4.1.1.39) (ribulose-P2 carboxylase), rate of enzyme synthesis and accumulation of the enzyme were examined for the plants… CONTINUE READING
