Organism Thale cress Arabidopsis thaliana

Method Mass flux analysis
Comments “Under control conditions, the MFA [mass flux analysis]-derived flux map reveals that 60% of the CO2 released was from respiration, 27% from the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway, and 9% from fatty acid synthesis. At high temperature, 82% of the total CO2 released was from respiration."
