Photosynthetic Carbon Metabolism in Photoautotrophic Cell Suspension Cultures of Chenopodium rubrum L.

Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


Photoautotrophic cell cultures “reduce” a complex photoautotrophic plant organism to a single cell level as concerns its growth requirements and photosynthetic capacities. This facilitates studies on the regulation of the photosynthetic carbon metabolism, measurements of chloroplast associated metabolic pathways, correlations between photosynthetic and dark respiratory metabolic pathways as well as relationships between cell growth and chloroplast development.
