Protein synthesis increases with photosynthesis via the stimulation of translation initiation

Tcherkez, Guillaume; Carroll, Adam; Abadie, Cyril; Mainguet, Samuel; Davanture, Marlène; Zivy, Michael


Leaf protein synthesis is an essential process at the heart of plant nitrogen (N) homeostasis and turnover that preferentially takes place in the light, that is, when N and CO2 fixation occur. The carbon allocation to protein synthesis in illuminated leaves generally accounts for ca. 1 % of net photosynthesis. It is likely that protein synthesis activity varies with photosynthetic conditions (CO2/O2 atmosphere composition) since changes in photorespiration and carbon provision should in...[Show more]
