Photocontrol of Enzyme Activity in Higher Plants — Activation or Synthesis?

Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 68)

Abstract

Light has been shown to modulate the activity of an extensive range of plant enzymes. In the case of some photosynthetic enzymes changes in activity are directly related to the increase in reductive power produced during the light reactions of photosynthesisl; however this system lies outside our remit and discussion here will be confined to the modulation of enzyme activities by photoreceptors other than the photosynthetic pigments. Most information is available for phytochrome-regulated enzymes but there is also some useful data involving blue and UV light. However before analysis of the detailed information that is currently available it is worthwhile considering a few general points concerning enzyme activities and photomorphogenesis.
