|Abstract:||Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) carboxylase activities of two cassava cultivars increased with leaf age but their Km(CO2) and Km(RuBP) values remained relatively constant. Km(CO2) values of 16 cassava cultivars ranged from 7.8 to 14.0 μM CO2, while Km(RuBP) values varied from 7.5 to 24.8 μM RuBP. Differences in the Km values could not be attributed to different physiological ages of plant material or to intravarietal variation, and are more likely to have been inherited. The results also showed that Km values have potential applications in cassava systematics. © 1987.|
