Systemic regulation of photosynthetic capacity and high-light tolerance in sorghum seedlings

Chow, Wah Soon; Jiang, Chuang-Dao; Wang, Xin; Gao, Hui-Yuan; Shi, Lei


Leaf anatomy of C3 plants is mainly regulated by a systemic irradiance signal. Since the anatomical features of C4 plants are different from that of C3 plants, we investigated whether the systemic irradiance signal regulates leaf anatomical structure and photosynthetic performance in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), a C4 plant. Compared with growth under ambient conditions (A), no significant changes in anatomical structure were observed in newly developed leaves by shading young leaves alone...[Show more]
