From light to dark: linking the roles of mitochondria in C4 photosynthesis with dark respiration

Fan, Yuzhen


Respiration is the powerhouse that provides energy and carbon skeletons for biosynthesis, cellular maintenance and active transport in plants. Increasing attention has been given to how rates of leaf respiration measured in the dark (Rdark) differ among species using a conventional C3 photosynthetic pathway. By contrast, less attention has been given to quantify rates of Rdark in species using a more efficient C4 photosynthetic pathway. Mitochondria in C4 plants play distinct roles depending on...[Show more]
