Organism Cyanobacteria Synechococcus PCC7002
Reference Sultemeyer D, Price GD, Yu JW, Badger MR (1995) Characterisation of carbon dioxide and bicarbonate transport during steady-state photosynthesis in the marine cyanobacterium Synechococcus strain PCC7002. Planta 197: 597-607. link p.599 table 1
Method "[Researchers] applied a newly developed mass-spectrometric disequilibrium technique (Badger MR, Palmqvist K, Yu J-W (1994) Measurements of CO2 and HCO 3 fluxes in cyanobacteria and microalgae during steady state photosynthesis. Physiol Plant 90: 529-536) to measure fluxes of inorganic carbon during steady-state photosynthesis in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC7002."
Comments "In Table 1 the values of K1/2(Ci), the Ci concentrations required for half-maximal response, for photosynthesis are compared between cells grown at different CO2 levels."
