The optimum temperature of protein synthesis in wheat seedlings (Triticum aestivum L.), measured as (14)C-leucine incorporation, depends on the growing temperature. Plants grown at reduced temperature (4 C) reach their optimum at 27.5 C, whereas plants kept at 36 C have the highest rate of protein synthesis at 35 C. The transition is gradual. The activation energy of protein synthesis for seedlings grown at medium or reduced temperature is lower (about 11 kcal/mole), than for plants grown at… CONTINUE READING
