Reversible light-activation of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase in isolated barley protoplasts and chloroplasts.

Abstract

The enzyme ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase displayed near-maximal activity in isolated, intact barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Pennrad) mesophyll protoplasts. The carboxylase deactivated 40 to 50% in situ when protoplasts were dark-incubated 20 minutes in air-equilibrated solutions. Enzyme activity was fully restored after 1 to 2 minutes of… (More)
