Protein synthesis increases with photosynthesis via the stimulation of translation initiation
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]
