On the effect of heavy water (D2O) on carbon isotope fractionation in photosynthesis
Internal conductance to carbon dioxide is a key aspect of leaf photosynthesis although is still not well understood. It is thought that it comprises two components, namely, a gas phase component (diffusion from intercellular spaces to cell walls) and a liquid phase component (dissolution, diffusion in water, hydration equilibrium). Here we use heavy water (D 2O), which is known to slow down CO2 hydration by a factor of nearly three. Using 12C/13C stable isotope techniques and Xanthium...[Show more]
