Description: 630 pages : illustrations ; 28 cm
Contents: 1. A leaf cell consists of several metabolic compartments --
2. The use of energy from sunlight by photosynthesis is the basis of life on earth --
3. Photosynthesis is an electron transport process --
4. ATP is generated by photosynthesis --
5. Mitochondria are the power station of the cell --
6. The Calvin cycle catalyzes photosynthetic CO[subscript 2] assimilation --
7. In the photorespiratory pathway phosphoglycolate formed by the oxygenase activity of RubisCo is recycled --
8. Photosynthesis implies the consumption of water --
9. Polysaccharides are storage and transport forms of carbohydrates produced by photosynthesis --
10. Nitrate assimilation is essential for the synthesis of organic matter --
11. Nitrogen fixation enables the nitrogen in the air to be used for plant growth --
12. Sulfate assimilation enables the synthesis of sulfur-containing substances --
13. Phloem transport distributes photoassimilates to the various sites of consumption and storage --
14. Products of nitrate assimilation are deposited in plants as storage proteins --
15. Glycerolipids are membrane constituents and function as carbon stores --
16. Secondary metabolites fulfill specific ecological functions in plants --
17. A large diversity of isoprenoids has multiple functions in plant metabolism --
18. Phenylpropanoids comprise a multitude of plant secondary metabolites and cell wall components --
19. Multiple signals regulate the growth and development of plant organs and enable their adaptation to environmental conditions --
20. A plant cell has three different genomes --
21. Protein biosynthesis occurs at different sites of a cell --
22. Gene technology makes it possible to alter plants to meet requirements of agriculture, nutrition, and industry.
Responsibility: by Hans-Walter Heldt in cooperation with Fiona Heldt.
