The combined effects of O2 on net rates of photosynthesis, photosystem II activity, steady-state pool size of key metabolites of photosynthetic metabolism in the C4 pathway, C3 pathway and C2 photorespiratory cycle and on growth were evaluated in the C4 species Amaranthus edulis and the C3 species Flaveria pringlei. Increasing O2 reduced net CO2 assimilation in F. pringlei due to an increased flux of C through the photorespiratory pathway. However, in A. edulis increasing O2 up to 5–10% stimulated photosynthesis. Analysis of the pool size of key metabolites in A. edulis suggests that while there is some O2 dependent photorespiration, O2 is required for maximizing C4 cycle activity to concentrate CO2 in bundle sheath cells. Therefore, the response of net photosynthesis to O2 in C4 plants may result from the balance of these two opposing effects. Under 21 versus 5% O2, growth of A. edulis was stimulated about 30% whereas that of F. pringlei was inhibited about 40%.
