Ferredoxin (Fd)-dependent glutamate synthase is present in green leaves, etiolated leaves, shoots and roots of Arabidopsis thaliana (ecotype Columbia). In photosynthetic green leaves and shoots, Fd-dependent glutamate synthase accounts for more than 96% of the total glutamate synthase activity in vitro with the remaining activity derived from an enzyme that uses NADH as the electron donor. In etiolated leaves and roots, Fd-dependent glutamate synthase is 3-4-fold less active than in green… CONTINUE READING
