The rate of the C¹⁴0₂ release from glucose, specifically labeled
with C¹⁴ at 1, 2, 3+4, and positions, was used to study the relative
participation of pathways of glucose catabolism in red beet slices.
Evidence was obtained which indicated that in mature red beets glucose
was catabolized mainly via glycolysis-tricarboxylic...
Cucumber, pea, bean, and corn excised roots were used to
assess species differences in metabolic uptake of calcium It was
found that Ca was mostly taken up by these root systems by non-metabolic
processes. The apparent free space ranged from 26 to 28
percent of the total root volume and...
The absorption, translocation and metabolism of a new
herbicide, n-propyl-C¹⁴ N, N-di-n-propyl-thiolcarbamate (PDPC), were
studied in both peanut and soybean plants. These studies were
carried out on plants of different ages and treated at two rates of
application. The residue content of the plants was also determined
from germination to...
