The activity of several photosynthetic enzymes was unaltered by exposure of sorghum or maize to low temperatures (10 C) and light (170 w m(-2)). Two light-activated C(4)-pathway enzymes, NADP-malate dehydrogenase and pyruvate Pi dikinase, were reduced in activity, and this was largely attributable to a loss of enzyme rather than to incomplete enzyme… CONTINUE READING
