Carbon metabolism in leaves of transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) containing elevated fructose 2,6-bisphosphate levels.

Abstract:

The aim of this work was to investigate the role of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate (Fru 2,6-P2) during photosynthesis. The level of Fru 2,6-P2 in tobacco plants was elevated by the introduction of a modified mammalian gene encoding 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase (6-PF-2-K). Estimates of the metabolite control coefficient (C) for Fru 2,6-P2 levels in response to increased 6-PF-2-K activity, suggest that small increases in 6-PF-2-K activity have little effect upon steady-state Fru 2,6-P2 levels (C = +0.08...
