Total amount of Adenine nucleotides in Maize Mesophyll Chloroplasts

Value 34.4 nmole/mg mesophyll Chloroplast Range: ±3.7 nmole/mg mesophyll Chloroplast
Organism Corn Zea mays
Reference Usuda H. Adenine Nucleotide Levels, the Redox State of the NADP System, and Assimilatory Force in Nonaqueously Purified Mesophyll Chloroplasts from Maize Leaves under Different Light Intensities. Plant Physiol. 1988 Dec88(4):1461-1468. Fig 1PubMed ID16666481
Method n = 12. AdN was measured by HPLC after extraction of the dried mesophyll chloroplast fraction into 3% HC104.
Comments The concentration of total AdN in maize mesophyll chloroplasts was estimated to be about 1.4 mM. This amount of total AdN is comparable to the reported values of 29 to 47 nmol/mg Chl with C3 mesophyll chloroplasts of spinach (43), wheat (36), and oat leaves (16).
