Comments "Irrespective of the type of uptake substrate, CO2 or HCO3- , there is a ensuing accumulation of HCO3- within the cell to ratios as high as 1000-fold with regard to total exogenous Ci (inorganic carbon) levels (BNID 109895). Peak internal Ci pools of between 20 mM and 40 mM are regularly measured in cyanobacteria (Primary sources)."
