A particulate cytoplasmic fraction was found capable of enhancing CO2 fixation, accompanied by CO2-dependent O2 evolution, in isolated chloroplasts obtained from pea seedlings (Pisum sativum L. cv. Dan). Carbon dioxide fixation by chloroplasts obtained from seedlings kept in the dark for 24 h prior to extraction could be enhanced up to 300%, while the photosynthetic rate of chloroplasts from pre-illuminated seedlings was enhanced only by 50%. The enhancement of photosynthetic capacity of the isolated chloroplasts persisted at maximal rates for a longer time than that of isolated chloroplasts without addition of the cytoplasmic fraction. This enhancement was light dependent. The particulate cytoplasmic fraction by itself did not fix CO2 but did consume oxygen. The enhancement was not the result of chloroplast fragments being present in the particulate fraction.
