Regulation of the expression of ferredoxin-glutamate synthase in barley

We have investigated the regulation of ferredoxin–glutamate synthase (Fd-GOGAT) in leaves of barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Maris Mink) at the mRNA, protein and enzyme activity levels. Studies of the changes in Fd-GOGAT during plant development showed that the activity in shoots increases rapidly after germination to reach a maximum (on a fresh-weight basis) at day 10 and then declines markedly to less than 50% of the maximal activity by day 30, this decline being correlated with an equivalent… CONTINUE READING
