The Influence of Leaf Age on C(4) Photosynthesis and the Accumulation of Inorganic Carbon in Flaveria trinervia, a C(4) Dicot.

Abstract

Characteristics of C(4) photosynthesis were examined in young, mid-age, and mature leaves of Flaveria trinervia (an NADP-malic enzyme-type C(4) dicot). The turnover of [4-(14)C] (malate plus aspartate) following a pulse with (14)CO(2) was similar in leaves of different ages (apparent half-time of 18-25 seconds). However, the rate of (14)CO(2) incorporation… (More)
