Photosynthetic formation of the aspartate family of amino acids in isolated chloroplasts
(Plant Physiology, 1980)
The metabolism of 14C-labeled aspartic acid, diaminopimelic acid, malic acid and threonine by isolated pea (Pisum sativum L.) chloroplasts was examined. Light enhanced the incorporation of [14C] aspartic acid into soluble ...
DNA biosynthesis in chloroplasts and its regulation: Studies on isolated chloroplasts and chloroplast extracts
(Progress in Photosynthesis Research, 1987)
During leaf development, chloroplasts are formed by the binary fission of pre-existing plastids (1); thus, replication of chloroplast DNA (ctDNA) must occur to maintain an adequate amount in each organelle. The levels of ...
DNA biosynthesis in intact, isolated chloroplasts
(Clarendon Press, 1984)
Amino acid biosynthesis in isolated pea chloroplasts: metabolism of labeled aspartate and sulfate
(FEBS Letters, 1978)
Accumulating evidence points to chloroplasts as the site of nitrite and sulfate reduction and incorporation into carbon skeletons [I] Furthermore, several enzymes of aspartate-family amino acid biosynthesis recently have ...
Regulation of aspartate-family amino acid biosynthesis: studies using isolated pea chloroplasts
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1993)
Purification of chloroplasts using silica-sols
(Academic Press, 1987)
This chapter describes procedures for the purification of chloroplasts using silica sols. Silica sols have two major advantages as media for density gradients—namely, low viscosity and negligible osmotic potential, allowing ...
ß- alanine metabolism and high salinity stress in the sea anemone, Bunodosoma cavernata
(Journal of Comparative Physiology B, 1984)
During high salinity stress, β-alanine accumulates to high levels in the sea anemone,Bunodosoma cavernata. Following a salinity increase from 26‰ to 40‰ β-alanine increased 28-fold from 1.5 to 41.9 μmoles/g dry weight. ...
Synthesis of branched chain amino acids
(CRC Press, 1987)
Effects of lysine, threonine, and methionine on light-driven protein synthesis in isolated pea (Pisum sativum L.) chloroplasts
Light-driven incorporation of [14C]leucine (LEU) into protein in isolated pea chloroplasts was inhibited by 0.1 and 1 mM lysine (LYS), 0.1–10 mM threonine (THR) and 1 mM methionine (MET). Equimolar combinations of LYS plus ...
