Plants operating C₃ and C₄ photosynthetic pathways exhibit differences in leaf anatomy and photosynthetic carbon fixation biochemistry. Fully understanding this underpinning biochemical variation is requisite to identifying solutions for improving photosynthetic efficiency and growth. Here we refine assay methods for accurately measuring the carboxylase and decarboxylase activities in C₃ and C₄ plant soluble protein. We show that differences in plant extract preparation and assay conditions are...[Show more]
