Gymnosperms have increased capacity for electron leakage to oxygen (Mehler and PTOX reactions) in photosynthesis compared with angiosperms
Oxygen plays an important role in photosynthesis by participating in a number of O2-consuming reactions. O2 inhibits CO 2 fixation by stimulating photorespiration, thus reducing plant production. O2 interacts with photosynthetic electron transport in the
