C₄ photosynthesis: 50 years of discovery and innovation

von Caemmerer, Susanne; Ghannoum, Oula; Furbank, Robert


It is now over half a century since the biochemical characterization of the C₄ photosynthetic pathway, and this special issue highlights the sheer breadth of current knowledge. New genomic and transcriptomic information shows that multi-level regulation of gene expression is required for the pathway to function, yet we know it to be one of the most dynamic examples of convergent evolution. Now, a focus on the molecular transition from C₃-C₄ intermediates, together with improved mathematical...[Show more]
