Time to reach steady state levels of ribulose 1,5 bisphosphate concentration in chloroplasts during photosynthesis

Range 5-10 min
Organism Spinach Spinacia oleracea
Reference Karl-Josef Dietz and Ulrich Heber, Rate-limiting factors in leaf photosynthesis: I. Carbon fluxes in the Calvin cycle, Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, 767 (1984) 432-443
Method Spinach was grown in a greenhouse with additional light in an 10 h light/14 h dark period. Leaves were harvested after more than 6 h illumination. Plants were kept in the dark for 60 minutes, and photosynthesis was induced by illumination in air
