23) The term refers to oxygen competing with carbon dioxide and preventing its fixation; the net effect of photorespiration
is that oxygen in the atmosphere depresses the rate of photosynthesis.
This reaction is essential to the production of glutamine and also serves as an effective means of using ammonia that has been produced by photorespiration
and other metabolic processes in plants.
Role of enzyme rubisco on photosynthesis and photorespiration
No effects could be found on the CO2 compensation point of field grown cotton when applied with foliar methanol, indicating common rates of photorespiration
2] emission by transpiration and photorespiration
equals the carbon fixed by photosynthesis) was 53.
The rate of reopening of RCIIs in high light may result from either an enhanced rate of the linear electron transport that leads to the formation of ATP and NADPH, or from enhanced rates of alternative electron transport pathways (pseudo-cyclic or cyclic) that are associated with sink processes such as photorespiration
1993) proposed that inhibition of photorespiration
may lower the rate of biosynthesis of oxalate in spinach.
The production of ROS during stresses results from pathways, such as photorespiration
, from the photosynthetic apparatus and from mitochondrial respiration .
3] species, which means that it is subject to photorespiration
when it is under high irradiance.
