Abstract

In the paper, Distribution of l4C Photosynthetic Assimilates in ‘Valencia’ Orange Seedlings at 10° and 25°C by C. L. Guy, G. Yelenosky, and H. C. Sweet (J. Amer. Soc· Hort. Sci. 106(4):433–437. 1981) the title for Table 1 should read: l4C-labeled fractions extracted from ‘Valencia’ orange seedlings exposed to l4CO2 (50 μCi for 3 hours) at 25° and 10°C and maintained at those temperatures for 28 days in controlled temperature light rooms.

Abstract

The distribution of 14C-photosynthate was determined in 8-month-old potted ‘Valencia’ orange seedlings [Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck] during 25° and 10°C temperature regimes. Seedlings were pulse-labeled with 14CO2 for 3 hr after equilibration with ambient air. Radioactive assimilates were extracted at selected intervals, from leaves, stems, and roots and separated into several biochemical fractions. Low-temperature (10°) exposure resulted in a greater retention of 14C in the sugar fraction of leaves and a lower rate of 14C incorporation into organic and amino acid fractions. Data indicate a lower rate of metabolism of photosynthate and a reduced distribution of 14C in citrus seedlings at 10° than at 25°C.
