Theoretical considerations about carbon isotope distribution in glucose of C3 plants

Tcherkez, Guillaume; Badeck, F.; Ghashghaie, Jaleh; Farquhar, Graham


The origin of the non-statistical intramolecular distribution of 13C in glucose of C3 plants is examined, including the role of the aldolisation of triose phosphates as proposed by Gleixner and Schmidt (1997). A modelling approach is taken in order to investigate the relationships between the intramolecular distribution of 13C in hexoses and the reactions of primary carbon metabolism. The model takes into account C-C bond-breaking reactions of the Calvin cycle and leads to a mathematical...[Show more]
