The relationship between carbon-dioxide-limited photosynthetic rate and ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate-carboxylase content in two nuclear-cytoplasm substitution lines of wheat, and the coordination of ribulose-bisphosphate-carboxylation and electron-transport capacities

Photosynthesis in two cultivars of Triticum aestivum was compared with photosynthesis in two lines having the same nuclear genomes but with cytoplasms derived from T. boeoticum. The in-vitro specific activity of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase (RuBPCase; EC 4.1.1.39) isolated from lines with T. boeoticum cytoplasm was only 71% of that of normal T… CONTINUE READING
