- The radioactive amino acid's synthesized from C¹⁴O₂ by green algae both in the light and in the dark after CO₂-free preillumination have been separated and identified using paper chromatography and radioautography. The radioactive amino acids identified were aspartic acid, alanine and smaller amounts of 3- and 4-carbon amino acids. This finding as well as the total absence of radioactive glutamic acid substantiates the mechanism for reduction of CO₂ previously postulated by members of this laboratory.
