Title: Alternative carbohydrate reserves used in the daily cycle of crassulacean acid metabolism

Author: Black, C.C.; Chen, J.-Q.; Doong, R.L.; Angelov, M.N.; Sung, Shi-Jean S.;

Date: 1996

Source: Pages 31-45 in Ecological Studies, Vol. 114.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Each day a massive interlocked biochemical cycle occurs in the green tissues of crassulacean acid metabolism plants.The function of this interlocked cycle, in its simplest context, is to furnish most of the CO2 for CAM plant photosynthesis.In this unified presentation our aims are (1) to divide CAM plants into two metabolic groups, (2) to document the use of different carbohydrate reserves by each group, (3) to integrate the unique biochemical reactions within each group into characteristic sets of metabolic pathways, thereby depicting two metabolic sequences of carbon cycling in CAM, and (4) to compare the bioenergetics and other features of these two metabolic groups.
