Why do plants need to control its activity?

This "photorespiration" occurs during illumination, because that’s when ATP and NADPH are available for synthesis of ribulose bisphosphate. The relative rate of the oxygenase reaction leading to phosphoglycolate depends on the [OEMCOR] concentration ratio, and it increases with increasing temperature. At high temperatures, photorespiration can cause plants to waste as much as 1l3 of the coz they fix. Some plants have mechanisms to minimize photorespiration a" (:02 + H20 2 HCO3' + W mesophyuce" PI 9 oxaloacetate pyruvate- “OZC-CHzc-COZ- phosphate NADPH dikinase h “ADE” (PH 'OZC-CHZCH-COZ‘ l I NADPH NADP+ " (IJH '020£H26H-C02‘ co2 malate {2} 3-phosphoglycerate Y bundle_sheath ca" ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate 1/13/2010 Typical architectures of (:3 and (24 plants mesophyll cells bundle sheath C,s plant bundle sheath cells have cells few or no chloroplasts wwwdcu. ief~parldnsmfpholoppt bundle sheath cells have many chloroplasts Plasmodesmata connect the bundle-sheath and mesophyll cells Plasmodesmata are channels that allow water, nutrients and some other molecules to move between plant cells.
