摘要

Subcellular concentrations of free amino acids in internodal cells of a Characeae, Chara corallina, were measured in the dark and in the light. Using an intracellular perfusion technique, we measured concentrations of amino acids in the vacuole, in the flowing sol endoplasm and in the cortical gel layer. The sol endoplasm was predominantly the cytosol. On the basis of microscopic observations, the gel layer appeared to be occupied predominantly by a layer of chloroplasts, while the sol endoplasm was free from chloroplasts. Both in the light and in darkness, the major amino acids in the internodal cells were isoasparagine, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, serine, glycine and alanine, as reported by Sakano and Tazawa (1984). The same major amino acids are found in each of the three compartments. The pattern of distribution of amino acids in the vacuole was similar to that in the sol endoplasm, but quite different from that in the gel layer. The total level of amino acids in the light was lower than that in darkness. The amino acid composition did not change very much, but the subcellular distribution of amino acids differed significantly between cells subjected to illumination and those kept in the dark. Concentrations of amino acids in both the vacuole and the gel layer decreased, whereas those in the sol endoplasm were almost constant. 1990 Deutsche Botanische Gesellschaft/German Botanical Society
