Net photosynthesis (Pn) is inhibited by moderate heat stress. To elucidate the mechanism of inhibition, we examined the effects of temperature on gas exchange and ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) activation in cotton and tobacco leaves and compared the responses to those of the isolated enzymes. Depending on the CO(2) concentration, Pn decreased when temperatures exceeded 35-40 degrees C. This response was inconsistent with the response predicted from the properties of… CONTINUE READING
