Question

as an undergraduate research assistant, you are assisting with a radioisotope tracer experiment. you expose a mature leaf on one side of the lower shoot of a sugar beet plant to 14co2 and then track the movement of the 14c atoms by radiography. where are you least likely to detect 14c?

Answer

The correct response is option (C), indicating a mature leaf located on the opposite side of the plant from the treated leaf. However, it is important to note that the question is not complete. As an undergraduate research assistant in a radioisotope tracer experiment, you treated a mature leaf on one side of a sugar beet plant's lower shoot region with 14CO2, and observed the activity of the 14C atoms using radiography. The question to be answered is: In which part of the plant will the detection of 14C be the lowest? Options include (A) roots, (B) the treated leaf, (C) a mature upper leaf located on the opposite side of the plant from the treated leaf, and (D) the shoot apical meristem.
