Mass Action Ratio, R, of the 3-Phosphoglycerate reducing system and Pi levels in Maize Mesophyll Chloroplasts under different light conditions

Range Table - link
Organism Corn Zea mays
Reference Usuda H. Adenine Nucleotide Levels, the Redox State of the NADP System, and Assimilatory Force in Nonaqueously Purified Mesophyll Chloroplasts from Maize Leaves under Different Light Intensities. Plant Physiol. 1988 Dec88(4):1461-1468.PubMed ID16666481
Method AdN was measured by HPLC after extraction of the dried mesophyll chloroplast fraction into 3% HC104.
Comments In the dark, where the flux of PGA to DHAP would be low, R was one order of magnitude higher than the thermodynamic equilibrium constant, assuming that stromal pH in the dark is 7.4
