Understanding CO₂ diffusion in C₄ plants: An investigation of CO₂ permeable aquaporins and carbonic anhydrase in the C₄ grass Setaria viridis

Osborn, Hannah Louise


The productive yield of key C₄ crops must increase in the future to meet the demands of an increasing global population. We are therefore endeavouring to improve the availability of CO₂ for photosynthesis, one of the fundamental limitations to photosynthetic carbon fixation. The initial steps of CO₂ assimilation in leaf mesophyll cells involve the diffusion of CO₂ from the intercellular airspace to the mesophyll cytosol (mesophyll conductance). This involves...[Show more]
