Reposted from ALGAE-L - can anyone answer this?
I have some undergrads who want a simple method for measuring the rate of
photorespiration. I remember reading somewhere about the use of
phenylhydrazine to measure the glyoxylate produced in photorespiration. Does
anyone have further details of this method, or does anyone know of a "better"
method which could be used.
Thanks in advance Peter Robinson
