Method First leaves and flag leaves of the wheat species Triticum aestivum cv Anza (6x), T. boeoticum Boiss (2x) L. were examined for content of pyruvate, orthophosphate dikinase (PPDK), phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC), and ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase (RuBPC) by protein blot analyses using antibodies to maize leaf enzymes and by activity assays.
Comments Table gives RuBisco and PPDK concentrations in mesophyll cell in radioactive decay units, (relative values). mesophyll cell numbers given in absolute values
