Interrogating plant Rubisco-Rubisco activase interactions

Milward, Sara Eve

Description

Atmospheric CO2 fixation is catalysed by the photosynthetic enzyme ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco). Despite the critical role Rubisco plays in the biosphere, it is a slow catalyst that poorly discriminates between substrate CO2 and O2, and is often the rate-limiting step of photosynthesis. These deficiencies have made improving Rubisco function a major target in steps towards enhancing leaf photosynthesis rate and plant growth. In...[Show more]
