Future Research into C₄ Biology [Editorial]

Taniguchi, Mitsutaka; Weber, Andreas P M; von Caemmerer, Susanne


The year 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of putting forward the idea of C₄ photosynthesis (Hatch and Slack 1966). During the early investigative years, considerable emphasis was placed on studying the biochemistry of C₄ photosynthesis (Hatch 1999), which revealed how the C₄ photosynthetic pathway functions as a CO₂ pump to concentrate CO₂ to the Calvin– Benson cycle. The high CO₂ concentration around ribulose-1, 5- bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) causes suppression of the...[Show more]
