A study by Mckinley et al. Q5. It has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory function These are organic compounds containing anthracene-9, 10-quinone, an anthracene derivative with two ketone groups attached to the central benzene ring, 7-hydroxy-5-methyl-2-(2-oxopropyl)-8-[(2S,3R,4R,5S,6R)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]chromen-4-one, 6-[4-hydroxy-2-methyl-6-[(2S,3R,4S,5S,6R)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]oxyphenyl]-4-methoxypyran-2-one, 2-[6-[4,5-dihydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)-6-[4,5,6-trihydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxyoxan-3-yl]oxy-4,5-dihydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxane-3,4,5-triol, It is a polysaccharide consisting of mannose units. The resulting O 2 evolution upon illumination depends on the presence of 2-oxoglutarate, is inhibited by 3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea, and is stimulated by methylamine. C4 Pathway. The initial fixation by PEP carboxylase in the mesophyll cells is a mechanism for concentrating CO2 in the bundle sheath cells to inhibit RuBP oxygenation. There is a lesser intracellular space and mesophyll have chloroplast. For operation of C 4 pathway, both mesophyll and bundle-sheath cells are required. They can cope with hot and dry environments since they have high water use efficiency (WUE). c. C02 and NH3 _ Most of the C4 types have what is known as Kranz anatomy (Figure 1), although C4-like metabolism can occur in single cells [8, 39] – an observation that supports the theory that it may be possible with new genetic tools to engineer a C4-type CCM system intracellularly in a C3 plant, thus suppressing photorespiration. The concentric arrangement of chlorenchyma, termed the “Kranz-syndrome”, is essential for the functioning of the C4 pathway and is thus characteristic of almost all C4 plants3,12. 11.10. C 4 plants have a distinctive leaf anatomy (Kranz anatomy), with chloroplast-rich bundle-sheath cells, which form a gas-tight cylinder surrounding the vascular bundle. Overview of the differences between C3, C4, and CAM photosynthesis. However, overexpression of PEPC in transgenic rice may cause a decrease in CO2 fixation and an increase in respiration under light conditions [46]. Legumes, however, form symbiotic relationships with bacteria that live in nodules on the plant’s roots. A. vera skin is rich in anthraquinones and the content of aloin in leaf epidermis is significantly higher than that in the gel (Ju et al., 2003). Thus, the basic pathway that results in the formation of the sugars, the Calvin pathway, is common to the C3 and C4 plants. Stomatal conductance does decrease under elevated CO2, much as with C3 species. The mechanism and possible regulation of C4 acid decarboxylation in NAD-malic enzyme-type C4 plants was studied using isolated bundle sheath cells and mitochondria from Panicum miliaceum. C4 plants, typical of warm, sunny environments, such as maize, sugar cane, and millet, avoid excessive water loss. Explain. in the blue and the red regions, also shows higher rate of photosynthesis. According to the literature, a large swing in carbohydrate composition of A. vera fillet has been explained by the fact that the mannosyl residues are contained in a reserve polysaccharide with a significant seasonal influence, as well as large variations between tracheophytes in terms of the quantities of mannose-containing polysaccharides within the parenchyma cells. The bundle sheath cells may form several layers around the vascular bundles; they are characterised by having a large number of chloroplasts, thick walls impervious to gaseous exchange and no intercellular spaces. For C4 species, it is within these cells that the incorporation of CO2 into organic compounds by the Calvin photosynthetic cycle takes place. In C4 plants RUBISCO may be restricted to the chloroplasts of the bundle-sheath, as has been shown by the use of highly specific antibodies labelled with fluorescent dyes. In plants, once fixed, carbon is partitioned to different plant organs and the amount partitioned between different plant parts is highly dependent on the functional type of the plant. The levels of enzyme activity associated with PEPC from various sources differ considerably; likewise its kinetic properties and its metabolic control at the molecular level. Fig. Ans: No, because vascular bundles are scattered in monocot. What does the action spectrum indicate? The light-independent reactions of photosynthesis or the Calvin cycle take place in bundle sheath cells. The bundle sheath cells are rich in RuBisCO enzyme (necessary for the C 3 or the Calvin cycle), but lack PEPcase. Q12.What is the basis for designating C3 and C4 pathways of photosynthesis? Under conditions of drought this may alleviate some of the effects of water stress, indirectly leading to higher photosynthetic rates and increased growth under elevated than ambient CO2 conditions (Kimball 2010; Leakey et al. What are accessory pigments? Although like all other proteins, enzymes are composed of amino acids, they differ in function in that they have the unique ability to facilitate biochemical reactions without undergoing change themselves, Miscellaneous compounds—minerals, organic compounds, lipids, Calcium, chlorine, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, sodium and zinc, Lectins and lectin-like substance, hydroxyproline, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, praline, threonine, tyrosine and valine, Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein, which manufacture and repair muscle tissue, B1, B2, B6,C, β-carotene, choline, folic acid, s-carotene, choline, folic acid, α-tocopherol, Vitamins A, C, and E (crucial antioxidants that combat dangerous free radicals in the body). The sheath is without intercellular space. The leaf has two external membranes which are green and leathery. Q18. Activation of RUBISCO by CO2: (a) complex of RuBP, CO2 and Mg2+ at the binding site; (b) sequential binding of CO2, Mg2+, RuBP and CO2 to the enzyme RUBISCO. In the C3 pathway, atmospheric CO2 enters the leaf via the stomata, diffuses as a gas to the chloroplast and is assimilated there directly through carboxylation using ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) as the acceptor by RuBisCO, in the photosynthetic C-reduction cycle also known as the Calvin cycle (Figures 1(a) and 2). This strong purging action is closely related to the chemical structure of the molecule. In addition these plants show tolerance to higher temperatures. 1.In C3 plants only rubisco is functional and only mesophyll cells are present while in C4 plants both pepcase and rubisco are present nd here both mesophyll and bundle sheath cells are present. NADP-malic enzyme (NADP-ME) occurs in the chloroplasts of bundle-sheath cells and, like the other decarboxylases of C 4 photosynthesis, it releases CO 2, which can be fixed directly by Rubisco. ii. The bundle sheath cells may form several layers around the vascular bundles; they are characterised by having a large number of chloroplasts, thick walls impervious to gaseous exchange and no intercellular spaces. Ans: The important enzyme of C3 pathway is RuBisCO and that of C4 pathway is PEPcase. Ans: a. Which one of them is more efficient in terms of photosynthetic activity? It should be noted that the results synthesized in Wang et al. Q1. Ans: No, this plant cannot photosynthesise in the absence of light. Is this structure present in animal cell or plant cell? i. The C4 enzyme also exhibits regulatory properties, with sugar phosphates acting as apparent allosteric regulators. In other words, unless a CO2 concentration mechanism exists, the enzyme will in general be working at less than half its maximum catalytic ability. These are named in the sequence of their discovery, and not in the sequence in which they function during the light reaction. Crops such as tomatoes and bell pepper, allowed to grow in a carbon dioxide rich environment, show higher yields because: (1) They show an increased rate of photosynthesis at higher carbon dioxide concentrations (2) They can respond to high carbon dioxide conditions even in low light conditions. They are seen around leaf veins surrounding the vascular bundles. Stephen A. Rackley, in Carbon Capture and Storage (Second Edition), 2017. Inside this tough resistant covering is the gel, which presents itself as a compact, gelatinous mass with a translucent pearly characteristic (Vogler and Ernst, 1999; Ramachandran et al., 2012). A feature of photosynthesis that has become an important research tool for tracking plant-derived carbon in the environment is its discrimination in favor of the lighter 12C isotope. Crops both allocate a larger proportion of biomass to reproduction than wild species and respond more in fruit and seed production than wild species to CO2 enrichment (Jablonski et al. Understanding how such a spatial arrangement of enzymes is accomplished and maintained is important to recreate a functional C4 pathway in C3 plants. There the carbohydrates can provide a carbon and energy source for the nitrogen-fixing bacteria. 31. Vascular plants are divided into at least three different photosynthetic types depending on the way they concentrate atmospheric CO2 at the site of the primary fixation step of the Calvin cycle catalyzed by RuBisCO [2, 35, 38, 39] (see Chapter 4.13). a. CAM, for crassulacean acid metabolism, plants adapted to living in hot, dry environments, such as cacti, also minimize photorespiration. Ans: Mitochondria and Chloroplast are semi-autonomous organelles or endosymbionts of cells because they A third type of photosynthesis, Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) photosynthesis, is much less common and is mostly only found in succulents. The ATPase enzyme consists of two parts: one part called the F0 is embedded in the membrane and forms a transmembrane channel that carries out facilitated diffusion of protons across the membrane. e. Synthesis of starch _________ E.D. In most C4 species, photosynthesis gene expression is compartmented between mesophyll and bundle-sheath cells. These modified stems of indefinite growth are called phylloclades. b. Absorption spectrum for any substance can be derived by plotting the different wavelengths of light. (d) PGA synthase Ans: ATP and NADPH. Ans: (a) Chlorophyll a pigment acts directly to convert light energy to chemical energy. Q3. During the synthesis of subunit B the precursor is transported across the chloroplastic membrane and, after cleavage of an extra peptide molecule in the stroma, it is eventually assembled with the large subunit to produce the holoenzyme. The bundle sheath in a leaf is a layer of compactly arranged parenchyma surrounding the vasculature (Esau, 1965) and is a conduit between the vasculature and the mesophyll cells. The large (A) subunit (M.W. When grown under elevated CO2, legumes may be able to direct carbohydrates obtained through enhanced photosynthesis to the root nodules. Zoe M. Harris, ... Gail Taylor, in Greenhouse Gas Balances of Bioenergy Systems, 2018. c. Leaves of maize plant show Kranz anatomy which is absent in Euphorbia leaves. • Some plants of arid regions modify their stems into flattened (Opuntia), or fleshy cylindrical (Euphorbia) structures. Transformants showed a 50 times increase in PEPC activity compared with that in the wild type. The gradient is broken down due to the movement of protons across the membrane to the stroma through the transmembrane channel of the F0 of the ATPase. It is generally accepted that woody plants are comprised of ~ 50% carbon, but this varies between species with softwood species generally having a higher carbon content. Aloe vera plant (Bhuvana et al., 2014). The mechanism and regulation of C4 acid decarboxylation in phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) carboxykinase-type C4 plants was examined in isolated bundle sheath cell strands. Carbon-concentrating mechanisms have evolved in plants to make them more efficient and C4 photosynthesis is one such carbon-concentrating mechanism. Ans: C4 plants are special: Macmillan; 2004. The C4 cycle is a key part of the high drought tolerance of B. aralocaspica, allowing it to grow in dry desert conditions. In plants with the C4 pathway either a single or a double layered sheath may be developed. The mesophyll cells in the leaves, have a large number of chloroplasts. A cyclic process is occurring in C3 plant, which is light dependent, and needs O2 This process does not produce energy rather it consumes energy. D.R. Plant mannans have β(1-4) linkages, (2S,3S,4R,5S,6S)-6-[(2R,3R,4R,5S,6R)-6-[(2R,3S,4R,5S,6R)-5-acetamido-6-[(2R,3R,4R,5S,6R)-4-acetyloxy-6-[(2R,3R,4R,5S,6R)-4-acetyloxy-6-[(2R,3R,4R,5S,6S)-4-acetyloxy-5-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)-6-methoxyoxan-3-yl]oxy-5-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxy-5-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxy-4-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxy-4-acetyloxy-5-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxy-4-acetyloxy-3-[(2R,3S,4R,5R,6R)-4-acetyloxy-5-[(2R,3S,4R,5R,6R)-4-acetyloxy-3-hydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)-5-methoxyoxan-2-yl]oxy-3-hydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]oxy-5-hydroxyoxane-2-carboxylate, Acemannan is a constituent of leaf juice of Aloe. These cells decarboxylated added oxaloacetate to PEP at rates exceeding 2.5 mumol min-1 mg-1 chlorophyll when ATP was added. A number of studies for the response variables for ambient and elevated CO2 are 186 and 334 (all), 143 and 323 (C3), 43 and 11 (C4), 43 and 54 (legumes), and 100 and 269 (nonlegumes). Cotrufo et al. Ans: On studying vertical sections of leaves, one of a C3 plant and the other of a C4 plant. to shield the Calvin cycle reactions from O2 in the leaf spaces. A comparison of total carbohydrates within energy crops (Table 5.1) found the tree species (willow and poplar), Miscanthus and sugarcane bagasse, contained the highest amount of cellulose. Chemical composition of Aloe vera leaf pulp, exudates, and activity (Josias, 2008; Gajendra and Sharique, 2016). Can these be passed on to the progeny? High values, reflecting a low affinity for CO2, have now been ascribed to problems with both isolation of the enzyme and assay under conditions which prevented its reactivation. Answer. 1998). Chlorophyll was relatively stable under alkalescent circumstances. Why is the RuBisCo enzyme more appropriately called RUBP Carboxylase- Oxygenase and what important role does it play in photosynthesis? D. Large intercellular spaces.
