Decrease in organic acid diurnal turnover when photoperiod decreased from 12h to 3h

Range 11.9-4.2 µmol/gFW
Organism Thale cress Arabidopsis thaliana
Reference Gibon Y, Pyl ET, Sulpice R, Lunn JE, Höhne M, Günther M, Stitt M. Adjustment of growth, starch turnover, protein content and central metabolism to a decrease of the carbon supply when Arabidopsis is grown in very short photoperiods. Plant Cell Environ. 2009 Jul32(7):859-74PubMed ID19236606
Comments gFW=gram fresh weight. Short photoperiods led to a two- to threefold decrease of organic acids at the end of the day, decreased diurnal turnover (from 11.9 to 7.8, 5.7 and 4.2 µmol gFW-1).
