Sulfur dioxide as a sulfur source in duckweeds (Lemna minor L.)

  • Chr. Brunold

Isotope competition experiments withLemna minor L. indicate that SO2-sulfur enters the sulfur amino acids of the proteins and the sulfoquinovose of the sulfolipids following oxidation to SO42− and subsequent reduction.
