Method "Spinach plants were grown in a climatized chamber with a 9 h light/15 h dark cycle and leaves were stopped in liquid N2 after 8.5 h light or 2 h dark. The leaves were subcellular fractionated as (ref 8). The results are mean values ± standard deviation of six measurements from three preparations. The concentrations are calculated on the assumptions given in Table I - link ."
Comments "A calculation of the hypothetic equilibrium NADPH to NADP ratio in the stroma of illuminated leaves from the concentrations of glutamate, malate, 2-OG and aspartate in Table IV - link , assuming a stromal pH of 8.0 yields a value of 3.4×10^-2, which is about 15 fold lower than the measured stromal NADPH to NADP ratio (Table III)."
