Photorespiration

What is Photorespiration? The process of photorespiration was first observed by Warburg (1920), so is also called as Warburg’s effect. During the process, the rate of photosynthesis decreases at higher O2 concentration (than CO2) in C3 plants. The process of photorespiration takes place in chloroplasts, peroxisomes and mitochondria. Biochemical Mechanism: When the O2 concentration is more …
