Abstract

Mitochondria isolated from detached pea shoots which had been grown in water for 1.5 h in the dark contained about 1.64 nmol NH4$ per mg of protein. Light treatment caused approximately 50% increase in the mitochondrial NH4$. Methionine sulfoximine slightly reduced the mitochondrial NH4$, although total NH4$ in the shoot extracts was greatly increased by the inhibitor.
