Experimental evidence for diel variations of the carbon isostope composition in leaf, stem and phloem sap organic matter in Ricinus communis

Gessler, Arthur; Tcherkez, Guillaume; Peuke, Andreas D; Ghashghaie, Jaleh; Farquhar, Graham


Carbon isotope fractionation in metabolic processes following carboxylation of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) is not as well described as the discrimination during photosynthetic CO2 fixation. However, post-carboxylation fractionation can influence the diel variation of δ13C of leaf-exported organic matter and can cause inter-organ differences in δ13C. To obtain a more mechanistic understanding of post-carboxylation modification of the isotopic signal as governed by physiological and...[Show more]
