The metabolic significance of octulose phosphates in the photosynthetic carbon reduction cycle in spinach

Williams, John F; MacLeod, John


14C-Labelled octulose phosphates were formed during photosynthetic14CO2 fixation and were measured in spinach leaves and chloroplasts. Because mono- and bisphosphates of d-glycero- d-ido-octulose are the active 8-carbon ketosugar intermediates of the L-type pentose pathway, it was proposed that they may also be reactants in a modified Calvin-Benson-Bassham pathway reaction scheme. This investigation therefore initially focussed only on the ido-epimer of the octulose phosphates even...[Show more]
