To test this hypothesis, we combined topographical analysis of ATP gradients across tissues, microsensor quantifications of internal O <sub>2</sub> levels, assays of energy balance, metabolite profiles and isotope-labelling studies.<br />Seeds show a marked degree of oxygen starvation in vivo (minimum O<sub> 2</sub> levels 0.1 kPa, ≈ 1.3 μ M ), affecting ATP gradients, overall energy state, metabolite pools and storage activity.<br />Despite the low light availability, photosynthesis supplies significant amounts of oxygen to the hypoxic seed tissue. This is followed by an increase in local ATP levels, most prominently within the lipid-synthesizing (inner) regions of the embryo. Concomitantly, partitioning of <sup>14</sup> C-sucrose to lipids is increased, suggesting higher rates of lipid biosynthesis.<br />It is concluded that both respiratory and biosynthetic fluxes are dynamically adjusted to photosynthetic oxygen supply.
