Identification of possible two‐reactant sources of oscillations in the Calvin photosynthesis cycle and ancillary pathways

Ryde-Pettersson, Ulf LU (1991) In European Journal of Biochemistry 198(3). p.613-619
Abstract

A systematic search for possible sources of experimentally observed oscillations in the photosynthetic reaction system has been performed by application of recent theoretical results characterizing the transient‐state rate behaviour of metabolic reactions involving two independent concentration variables. All subsystems involving two independent reactants in metabolically fundamental parts of the Calvin cycle and the ancillary pathways of starch and sucrose synthesis have been examined in order to decide on basis of their kinetic and stoichiometric structure whether or not they may trigger oscillations. The results show that no less than 20 possible oscillators can be identified in the examined reaction system, only three of which have... (More)

A systematic search for possible sources of experimentally observed oscillations in the photosynthetic reaction system has been performed by application of recent theoretical results characterizing the transient‐state rate behaviour of metabolic reactions involving two independent concentration variables. All subsystems involving two independent reactants in metabolically fundamental parts of the Calvin cycle and the ancillary pathways of starch and sucrose synthesis have been examined in order to decide on basis of their kinetic and stoichiometric structure whether or not they may trigger oscillations. The results show that no less than 20 possible oscillators can be identified in the examined reaction system, only three of which have been previously considered as potential sources of experimentally observed oscillations. This illustrates the superiority of the method now applied over those previously used to identify possible two‐reactant sources of metabolic oscillations and indicates that there should be no difficulty in complex metabolic pathways to point to a multitude of interactions that may trigger an oscillatory rate behaviour of the system.
