Moreover, proteins of chloroplasts were identified: ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase activase, heat-shock - related protein HSP 70, oxygen-evolving protein 1 as well as oxygen-evolving protein 2 and mitochondrial-ATP synthase, subunit d.
Two genes were selected to provide adequate resolution and taxa coverage: low-copy nuclear gene phosphoribulokinase (PRK) and chloroplast gene ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase (rbcL).
Peoples & Koch (1979) have reported a clear effect of [K.sup.+] the rate of C[O.sub.2] assimilation, by promoting the synthesis of Ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase and by decreasing diffusive resistance of C[O.sub.2] in the mesophyll.
