Refixation of photorespiratory ammonia and the role of alanine in photorespiration: Studies with15N


Labelling experiments with15N glutamate and15N alanine were conducted using slices from oat leaves to investigate photorespiratory nitrogen metabolism. It is concluded from the labelling kinetics of glutamine that the refixation of photorespiratory ammonia primarily occurs by glutamine synthetase in the chloroplast. The labelling kinetics of glutamine… (More)
