Strategies for improving C₄ photosynthesis

von Caemmerer, Susanne; Furbank, Robert T


Recent activities to improve photosynthetic performance in crop plants has focused mainly on C₃ photosynthesis where there are clear identified targets such as improving Rubisco kinetics, installation of a CO₂ concentrating mechanism and alleviating limitations in chloroplast electron transport. Here we address strategies to improve photosynthetic performance in C₄ plants, which utilize a CO₂ concentrating mechanism, having evolved a complex blend of anatomy and biochemistry to achieve this....[Show more]
