Response of carbon dioxide fixation to water stress: parallel measurements on isolated chloroplasts and intact spinach leaves.

Abstract

Application of water stress to isolated spinach (Spinacia oleracea) chloroplasts by redutcion of the osmotic potentials of CO(2) fixation media below -6 to -8 bars resulted in decreased rates of fixation regardless of solute composition. A decrease in CO(2) fixation rate of isolated chloroplasts was also found when leaves were dehydrated in air prior to… (More)
