from book Photosynthesis: Physiology and Metabolism (pp) Photosynthesis, Carbohydrate Metabolism and Respiration in Leaves of Higher Plants Chapter April with 3, Reads. Aquatic Plants (including marine) plants also fix substantial amount larger than land plants of dissolved carbon. Carbohydrates thus act as the primary food and fuel for all living organisms and also it is the main source of energy for various human needs like firewood, coal, biogas, petroleum, and bio-electricity etc. Photosynthetic characteristics, carbon allocation and partitioning of newly-fixed14C among the various carbohydrate fractions were studied in leaves of potato plants (Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Désirée) of different ages. The higher photosynthetic rate of young leaves was associated with higher levels of starch and reducing sugars. After 24 hours, in young leaves the fixed14C had been Cited by: Carbohydrate metabolism in plants Paperback – January 1, by C. M Duffus (Author) › Visit Amazon's C. M Duffus Page.

Metabolism of Glycogen Major storage form of carbohydrate. Glycogenesis: occurs in muscle & liver. Biomedical importance Liver glycogen largely concerned with transport & storage of hexose units. For maintenance of blood glucose mainly between meals. Uses Crassulacean acid metabolism, an adaptation for photosynthesis in arid conditions. In this process, CO2 entering open stomata during the night is converted to organic acids, which release CO2 for Calvin Cycle during day, when stomata are closed.

Chloroplasts perform many metabolic reactions in green leaves. In addition to CO2 fixation, the synthesis of almost all amino acids, all fatty acids and carotenes, all pyrimidines, and probably all purines occurs in chloroplasts. However, the synthesis of sugars from CO2 is the most extensively studied biosynthetic reaction in plant cells — and it is certainly a unique one. Carbohydrate metabolism in plants by C. M.
