Hydrogen peroxide (6x10-4 M) causes a 90% inhibition of CO2-fixation in isolated intact chloroplasts. The inhibition is reversed by adding catalase (2500 U/ml) or DTT (10 mM). If hydrogen peroxide is added to a suspension of intact chloroplasts in the light, the incorporation of carbon into hexose- and heptulose bisphosphates and into pentose monophosphates is significantly increased, whereas; carbon incorporation into hexose monophosphates and ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate is decreased.
