Preliminary studies of ascorbate metabolism in green and albino regions of variegated leaves of Coleus blumei, Benth.

Abstract

Green and white variegated leaves of Coleus blumei, Benth. were separated into albino and green sections and used to determine the distribution of vitamin C and L-galactose dehydrogenase activity, an enzyme supposed to be involved in ascorbate metabolism, in heterotrophic and autotrophic foliar fractions. Both green and white sections contained vitamin C… (More)
