Because of this, there is currently research underway to engineer a poplar that utilises CAM photosynthesis [1]. Solution for C4 plants collect CO2 in mesophyll cells, which are close to the leaf surface, then transfer it to bundle-sheath cells, which are rich in RuBP… Modified from Yamori W, Hikosaka K, Way DA. c. Which enzyme is there in bundle sheath cells and mesophyll cells? These compounds contain four carbon atoms, hence the name C4 photosynthesis. In addition, a small number of species which cannot be classified as C3, C4, or CAM have been found to have some aspects of both C3 and C4 photosynthesis and are named C3–C4 intermediate species [7]. Chemical composition of Aloe vera leaf pulp, exudates, and activity (Josias, 2008; Gajendra and Sharique, 2016). Plants at great depth contains some accessory pigments that can easily capture the light. • One intemode long phylloclade or stem which is leaf like is called cladode. Stomatal conductance does decrease under elevated CO2, much as with C3 species. Leonardos, B. Grodzinski, in Comprehensive Biotechnology (Second Edition), 2011. In C4 plants, CO2 is initially fixed by an enzyme with a much higher affinity for CO2 (phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) carboxylase) with no oxygenase activity. i.One portion called F0 is imbedded in the membrane and forms a transmembrane channel that carries out facilitated diffusion of protons across the membrane. The 4-carbon organic acid is then converted to a similar molecule, called malate, that can be transported into the bundle-sheath cells. (b)     Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate It is not clear yet to what extent a full and robust C4-type CCM requires all features of the Kranz anatomy for full functionality, but the proximity of the BSC to the vascular tissue especially for efficient phloem loading cannot be overlooked [15, 24, 29, 37, 40]. b. OAA (Oxaloacetic acid) Reactions catalysed by RUBISCO. b. 15,000) by nuclear DNA. (b) Hydrogen, 02 and sugar The majority of photorespiratory gene expression, with some important exceptions, is restricted to the bundle sheath. Ans: a. Euphorbia is a CAM plant while maize is a C4 plant. Anatomy of source leaves of Flaveria species with different photosynthetic pathways. This process does not directly depend on the presence of light but is dependent on the products of the light reaction, i.e., ATP and NADPH, besides C02 and H20. 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. The activities of nitrate-assimilating enzymes, except for nitrate reductase, were high enough to account for the proposed in vivo rates of nitrate assimilation. Table 8.2. organic compound (malic acid) accumulates throughout the night and is decarboxylated during the day to produce C02. C4 plants collect CO2 in mesophyll cells, which are close to the leaf surface, then transfer it to bundle-sheath cells, which are rich in RuBP carboxylase and surround the “veins” that deliver water to the leaf tissue. Six turns of Calvin cycle are required to generate one mole of glucose. Cotrufo et al. nomenclature of 3 – phospho-D-glycerate carboxylase – E.C. (d) ATP, hydrogen and 02 donor Fig. Q1.Succulents are known to keep their stomata closed during the day to check transpiration. They have a special type of leaf anatomy. If no, why not? Ans: For ease of understanding, the Calvin cycle can be described under three stages: carboxylation, reduction and regeneration. (d)     ATP synthase Also, vascular bundles are surrounded by the bundle sheath cells. These protons are also removed from the stroma. Q8. 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). Q13. Ans: Photosynthesis and respiration are related to each other as. This resulted in a slightly increased CO2 fixation rate, and partial suppression of O2 inhibition of photosynthesis [43]. Section of the central region of a cotyledon showing a high level of activity in only some of the storage cells, x 150. In addition these plants show tolerance to higher temperatures. Type I C3–C4 intermediates have no C4 metabolism present, whereas type II intermediates have a limited but functional C4 metabolism (Figure 2). In so-called C4 plants, which include sugarcane, maize, and sorghum, CO2 is captured in the inner mesophyll layer via the formation of oxaloacetate and malate. C4 photosynthesis relies on cooperation between mesophyll cells for the initial fixation of bicarbonate, but not CO2, and bundle sheath cells for fixation of CO2 concentrated by the C4 cycle [41]. The mestome sheath is encircled by a second, parenchymatic sheath containing only a few chloroplasts which are sometimes smaller than those in the mesophyll. Is it a photosynthetic pigment? d. Where does it occur? b. Observe the diagram and answer the following. Usually the chloroplasts align themselves along the walls of the mesophyll cells, such that they get the optimum quantity of the incident light. 3 c. 1 d. 0. BOLHAR-NORDENKAMPF, in Techniques in Bioproductivity and Photosynthesis (Second Edition), 1985. At one time it was widely known as carboxydismutase; the terms ribulose diphosphate carboxylase, ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase and abbreviations such as RDP, RBP, RuBP carboxylase have been used in the past. They have a special type of leaf anatomy. Chemical characteristics of some select compounds, J. COOMBS, in Techniques in Bioproductivity and Photosynthesis (Second Edition), 1985. Carbon sequestration can be natural where the natural processes of the carbon cycle are utilised, such as biological fixation described above, or artificial sequestration where carbon is compressed and stored, known as carbon capture and storage (CCS; discussed in more detail in Section 5.2). During this process ATP, C02 and water are evolved. What are those parts? CAM, for crassulacean acid metabolism, plants adapted to living in hot, dry environments, such as cacti, also minimize photorespiration. Q8. The polysaccharide is stored in the palisade tissue of the epidermal keratinocytes (Luo et al., 2004; Zhiliang, 2008). Q2.Chlorophyll a is the primary pigment for light reaction. One of the challenges which plants face is that, when opening their stomata to take in CO2 for photosynthesis, they also become vulnerable to increased evapotranspirational water loss. Q6. (b) PSI, plastoquinone, cytochromes, PSII, ferredoxin in c3 plants both mesophyll and bundle sheath have rubisco while in c4 plants only bundle sheath cells have rubisco. C4 plants are special: a. 11.11. These substances are transported into the bundle sheath cells where CO2 is generated by a decarboxylation process and refixed by Ribulose 1,5–bisphosphate (RuBP) carboxylase (also known as RUBISCO). In both processes ATP synthesis takes place. In each case the parenchymatic cells are characteristically larger than the mesophyll cells. Which pigment acts directly to convert light energy to chemical energy? Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. 31. (c) PSI, ferredoxin, PSII C4 plants also show much less of a response of nitrogen and protein concentrations to elevated CO2 than do C3 plants (Cotrufo et al. Thus, we find that C 4 plants undergo carboxylation twice, ie in mesophyll, through the C 4 Cycle and in bundle sheath cells via the Calvin Cycle. 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. Synthesis of the subunits is on chloroplastic (70s) or cytoplasmic (80s) ribosomes respectively (Figure 11.8). iii. 5.1. [46] reported that a quadruple transfomant rice line harboring PEPC, PPDK, MDH, and NADP+-ME showed a slight increase in CO2 fixation rate. In most C4 species, photosynthesis gene expression is compartmented between mesophyll and bundle-sheath cells. ‘ Plants with CAM also have C4 biochemical features to concentrate the CO2 at the site of RuBisCO; however, the operation of the CAM-specific CCM involves a temporal separation of activities, can proceed intracellularly, and seems to be related to stomatal closure due to drought and heat stress during the day. 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. Do reactions of photosynthesis called, as ‘Dark Reaction’ need light? 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. [6] on biomass partitioning in Sorghum grown as a bioenergy crop found biomass, primarily leaves, leaf sheaths, and roots, accumulated predominantly until floral initiation, then stems dominated until anthesis (the opening of the flower buds), then panicles (branching cluster of flowers) until grain maturation. There is also research into the potential use of the CAM plants—prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) and the pencil cactus (Euphorbia tirucalli) as bioenergy sources in the form of biogas [2]. In plants with the C 4 pathway either a single or a double layered sheath may be developed. • The bundle sheath cells are rich in an enzyme Ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase (RuBisCO), but lack PEPcase. On the other hand, in B. aralocaspica, RuBisCO, NAD+-ME, PPDK, and PEPC are spatially separated within the cell. It is now clear that this activation depends on the reaction of CO2 with an -NH2 group of the lysine molecule at its active centre (Figure 11.11). Which metal ion is a constituent of chlorophyll? Section of the peripheral region of the cotyledon showing Find out. 11.9. Which one of them do you think will be able to survive under such conditions? Ans: Photosynthesis does take place in the green leaves of plants but it does so also in other green parts of the plants. Hydroxyproline is produced by hydroxylation of the amino acid proline and is, therefore, a post-translationally modified amino acid. iv. Through the process of photosynthesis, plants are able to convert solar radiation into chemical energy used for the growth of new tissue, a process described by the equation for photosynthesis: The products of photosynthesis are carbohydrates and oxygen. Each photosynthetic type possesses a unique set of anatomical (Figure 1), biochemical, and physiological features (Figure 2), which have developed through evolution, allowing for adaptation to different environmental conditions in which H2O losses and CO2 uptake are balanced. Ans: Though C4 plants have C4 oxaloacetic acid as is the first C02 fixation product they use the C3 pathway or Calvin cycle as the main biosynthetic pathway. Which light range is least effective in photosynthesis? Suppose Euphorbia and maize are grown in the tropical area. (2002) found no decrease in nitrogen concentrations under elevated CO2 in the seeds of legumes, compared to an average decrease of 14% in the seeds of nonlegume C3 plants. Thus the efficiency of photosynthesis and biomass productivity may be increased either by changing the ratio of CO2 to oxygen at the catalytic site or by changing the kinetic activity of the enzyme. Predominant localization of mitochondria enriched with glycine‐decarboxylating enzymes in bundle sheath cells of Alternanthera tenella, a C 3Alternanthera tenella, a C 3 • Photosynthetic or Assimilatory roots: They are green roots which are capable of PHS, e.g., Trapa bispinosa (water chestnut = Singhara), Tmospora (Gillow or Gurcha), Podostemum. Ans: Pigments are substances that have an ability to absorb light, at specific wavelengths. Q17. Overall, in FACE experiments, C4 plants show approximately one-third of the increase of photosynthetic rates experienced by C3 species, and little enhancement of growth (Ainsworth and Long 2005). These have agranal chloroplasts and contain starch grains. Q10. Cladode is capable of photosynthesis. PEP carboxylase, which is located in the mesophyll cells, is an essential enzyme in C 4 plants. i. b. Cells are participating in this process. The three major biochemical variants of photosynthesis are: C3 photosynthesis, the first product of CO2 fixation being a three-C compound (3-phosphoglycerate, PGA); C4 photosynthesis, the first product being a four-C compound (e.g., oxaloacetic acid, OAA); and crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), the first product being OAA during nighttime and PGA during daylight depending on prevailing plant or environmental factors. Although the heavier 13C isotope has a natural abundance of ~1% in the atmosphere, when CO2 availability is not the limiting factor for primary production, photosynthesis discriminates against the heavier isotope with the result that carbon-fixed plant biomass is relatively depleted in 13C. Carboxylation is the most crucial step of the Calvin cycle where C02 is utilised for the carboxylation of RuBP. Schematic representation of A. vera leaf pulp structure and its components (Ni et al., 2004). As already mentioned above, CO2 is not only a substrate for the enzyme but also functions as an activator or regulator of the carboxylation reactions. Sangeeta Bajpai, in Synthesis of Medicinal Agents from Plants, 2018. Dark reaction in photosynthesis is called so because Carbon sequestration can be defined as the removal of carbon from the atmosphere and storage in a long-term store or pool. The bundle sheath cells are rich in an enzyme Ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase (RuBisCO) , but lack PEPcase. 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. Other groups have also reported an increase in photosynthetic CO2 fixation [44, 45]. Do they receive qualitatively and quantitatively the same light? The desired reaction is the addition of carbon dioxide to carboxylation, a key step in the Calvin cycle; however, approximately 25% of reactions by rubisco instead add oxygen, creating a product that cannot be used within the Calvin cycle. Q4. How do they conduct photosynthesis? a. Biomass partitioning, the process where plants allocate resources such as carbohydrates to regions of the plant, is integral for the growth of a crop. The breakdown of the gradient provides enough energy to cause a conformational change in the F, particle of the ATPase, which makes the enzyme synthesise several molecules of energy-packed ATP. In turn, the rate of p-glycollate production will control the rate of photorespiratory loss of carbon dioxide via the further metabolism of glycollate in the C2 pathway. Inside the bundle-sheath cells, malate breaks down and releases a molecule of CO 2. 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. Q16. The mesophyll cells in the leaves, have a large number of chloroplasts. To do this they minimize photorespiration by separating initial CO2 fixation and the Calvin cycle by performing these steps in different cells in the leaf. The enzyme that is not found in a C3 plant is The particularly large cells around the vascular bundles of the C4 pathway plants are called bundle sheath cells, and the leaves which have such anatomy are said to have ‘Kranz’ anatomy. Ans: Photosynthetic organisms occur at different depths in the ocean. It is a fungal isolate and natural. This phenomenon was first investigated in the Gramineae, where the differentiation of the bundle sheaths and the arrangement of chloroplasts in the sheath cells indicate the type of CO2 assimilation. Ans: (a) Chlorophyll a pigment acts directly to convert light energy to chemical energy. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V.

The rate of turnover of the oxygenase reaction is an order of magnitude lower. This allows RUBISCO to work efficiently, even with low CO2 concentrations in the intercellular spaces of the mesophyll. Previously, we have discussed the average effects of growth under elevated CO2 across all species of plants. In tropical rain forests, the canopy is thick and shorter plants growing below it, receive filtered light. In both processes electron transport system requires. ii. This color is seen because the carotenoid pigments. The perimetric bundle sheath cells give rise to bitter, yellow exudates. A C4 plant uses this photosynthetic pathway to avoid photorespiration. During the day the stomata are closed, reducing oxygen availability for photorespiration, and the CO2 is released, enabling Calvin cycle (C3) photosynthesis. Kranz anatomy requires many intercellular movements of intermediates between the MCs and BSCs. No The bundle sheath cells play no significant role in photosynthetic CO2 assimilation and metabolism. In grasses with the C3 pathway the vascular tissue is surrounded by two bundle sheaths. Q3. What important role do they play in fixing C02? Therefore, A. vera skin as a raw material of chlorophyll, turning waste into treasure, not only improves the economic value of A. vera, but also provides a new way for the development and utilization of the A. vera skin. This fragment was cloned, and sequences flanking … Ans: ATPase enzyme consists of two parts: 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. 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. The stability of the chlorophyll could be influenced by lightening. Besides, A. vera skin also includes a variety of mineral elements, such as calcium, iron, zinc, manganese whose content is higher than that of the gel (Zhen et al., 2011). 2002). Rubisco enzyme in bundle sheath cells fix CO2 and produce sugars. Q12. The difference between bundle sheath cells in C3 and C4 plants is that. Hence, the chloroplasts are called dimorphic. . Photosynthetic mechanisms in C4 plants. A review article (Liu et al., 2013) envisages a report that chlorophyll in the A. vera skin has a good tolerance for thermo-stability. In C 4 plants (see C4 pathway) the bundle sheath cells contain chloroplasts and are the site of the Calvin cycle.The initial fixation of carbon dioxide to form malic acid takes place in the palisade mesophyll cells, which in C 4 plants form a circle around the bundle sheath. The inner, called the “mestome-sheath”, which has few or no chloroplasts, shows thickened cell walls and replaces the missing supporting elements in the vascular bundle. They show a response to high light intensities. a. Ans: C4 plants are special: The C4 cycle is a key part of the high drought tolerance of B. aralocaspica, allowing it to grow in dry desert conditions. What are accessory pigments? (a)    RuBP Carboxylase                       Two factors contribute to the reduction of photorespiration in C4 and C3–C4 intermediates. Ans: (a) The correct sequence of flow of electrons in the light reaction is PSII, plastoquinone, cytochromes, PSI and ferredoxin. iv. The ones found in, They improve proper digestion, maintain cholesterol levels, and improve liver functions, 1,8-dihydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)anthracene-9,10-dione), Aloe-emodin is an Anthraquinone present in, (10S)-1,8-dihydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)-10-[(2S,3R,4R,5S,6R)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]-10H-anthracen-9-one, Aloin is a constituent of various Aloe species Aloin extracted from natural sources is a mixture of two diastereomers, termed aloin A (also called barbaloin) and aloin B (or isobarbaloin), which have similar chemical properties.
