AbstractThe photosynthetic assimilation of radioactive carbon dioxide for two-minute periods by Scenedesmus has bee studied at temperatures ranging from 25 to 44 C. All labeled intermediates cease to be formed at about 45 C. With rising temperature, the radioactivity reaching the sugar phosphate reservoirs decreases regularly while there is a sharp maximum in sucrose at 37 C. and a less pronounced one in malic and aspartic acids about 40 C. A tentative interpretation of these effects is offered.
