Growth and maintenance in respiration

  1. 1. GROWTH AND MAINTENANCE IN RESPIRATION
  2. 2. RESPIRATION
  3. 3. RESPIRATION Oxidation of organic substances to CO2 and water Can be divided into 3 groups :  Autotrophic respiration / plant respiration.  Heterotrophic respiration / soil respiration.  Photorespiration.
  4. 4. Diagram 1: Autotrophic respiration and Heterotrophic respiration
  5. 5. DEFINITION OF AUTOTROPHIC,HETEROTROPHIC AND PHOTORESPIRATION
  6. 6. AUTOTROPHIC Capable of self-nourishment Requires only minerals for growth Uses carbonate or carbon dioxide as a source of carbon and simple inorganic nitrogen as a nitrogen sourceSources: GNU Websters 1913
  7. 7. HETEROTROPHIC Not self-sustaining Dependent upon others for food. Requires organic compounds of carbon and nitrogen for nourishmentSources: Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia and WordNet 3.0
  8. 8. PHOTORESPIRATION Oxidation of carbohydrates in plants with the release of carbon dioxide during photosynthesis. Happens on hot dry days when a plant is forced to close its stomata to prevent excess water loss.Sources: American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
  9. 9. AUTOTROPHICRESPIRATION
  10. 10. AUTOTROPHIC RESPIRATION Respiration: Oxidation of organic substances to CO2 and water Defined as loss of photosynthetically fixed carbon lost by internal plant metabolism Byproduct are ATP and NADPH
  11. 11. AUTOTROPHIC RESPIRATION Common chemical equation of autotrophic respiration for glucose is: C6H12O6 + 6O2  6CO2 + 6H2O + energy The autotrophic respiration consists of: • Growth Respiration • Maintenance Respiration

  13. 13. GROWTHRESPIRATION
  14. 14. GROWTH RESPIRATION Growth - refers to the biosynthesis process within a growing organ and related phloem transport, excluding mineral uptake and nitrogen reduction Includes the carbon cost of synthesizing new tissue from glucose and minerals used for growth Rate for various tissue differs depends on the their compositions.
  15. 15. GROWTH RESPIRATION Repair of injured tissue increase maintenance respiration above basal rate.

  17. 17. MAINTENANCERESPIRATION
  18. 18. MAINTENANCE RESPIRATION Refers to the CO2 released, or O2 consumed, during basal rate of metabolism of usable energy used for:  Resynthesis of compounds that undergo renewal  Maintenance of chemical gradients of ions and metabolites across cellular membranes  Operation of metabolic processes involved in physiological adjustment to a change in the plants environment
  19. 19. MAINTENANCE RESPIRATION Temperature is the most important environmental factor affecting maintenance respiration The metabolic costs of the repair of injury from stress (biotic/abiotic) also considered as part of maintenance respiration Essential for biological health and growth of plants, sustain living tissues.
  20. 20. MAINTENANCE RESPIRATION Key component of most physiologically based mathematical models of plant growth, includes:  models of crop growth and yield  models of ecosystem primary production and carbon balance

  22. 22. CONCLUSION
  23. 23. CONCLUSION In sense of learning growth and maintenance respiration in crop physiology, we can:  Learn mechanism used by plants to grow and maintain its growth  Learn and predict the life cycle of a specific plant  How to maintain a specific plant growth to increase its yield as well as its yield production longevity (important for economic crop producers)
