Functional Analysis of Corn Husk Photosynthesis
The husk surrounding the ear of corn/maize (Zea mays) has widely spaced veins with a number of interveinal mesophyll (M) cells and has been described as operating a partial C3 photosynthetic pathway, in contrast to its leaves, which use the C4photosynthetic pathway. Here, we characterized photosynthesis in maize husk and leaf by measuring combined gas exchange and carbon isotope discrimination, the oxygen dependence of the CO2compensation point, and photosynthetic enzyme activity and...[Show more]
