The study focuses on a form of photosynthesis, known as crassulacean acid
metabolism (CAM), which has evolved over millions of years, and which is responsible for building water-saving characteristics in plants such as the orchid and pineapple, where the KalanchoAaAaAeAe1/2 genome has be latelyrecently identified.
During the dark hours, plant cells snag the C[O.sub.2] gas and convert it into crassulacean acid
, each molecule of which contains four carbon atoms.

The leaf responses measured included rolling, paraheliotropic movements, increase in reflectance and induction of Crassulacean acid
In the week 56, the increment started at 18:00 reaching a maximum of 45.19[micro]mol[H.sup.+]*[g.sup.-1] tissue at 06:00, showing the typical crassulacean acid
