The activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH, E. C. 220.127.116.11) in a reconsituted pea chloroplast system was assayed spectrophotometrically by the reduction of NADP, ming glucose-6-phosphate as substrate. Deactivation of G6PDH could be intensified by adding lightreduced thioredoxin (Td) into the reconstituted chloroplast system. The experimental results presented suggest that Td plays an important role not only in the dark activation, but also in the light deactivation of G6PDH in chloroplasts. There were two isozymes of G6PDH in green and in etiolated pea seedlings. The effects of dithiothreitol (DTT) and Td on G6PDH in etiolated seedlings were different from that in chloroplasts. The light regulation of G6PDH in chloroplasts is mediated through Td.
