Rubisco sequence-structure-function : coevolution and codon bias of rbcL gene

Agrawal, Animesh K.

Description

Ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco, EC 4.1.1.39) is the primary photosynthetic enzyme responsible for C0{u2082} fixation. Though Rubisco is critical to photosynthesis, it is a very inefficient enzyme with a low catalytic rate and competing oxygenase activity that initiates a wasteful photorespiratory pathway. This paradoxical relationship between the functional significance of Rubisco and its apparent inefficiency is puzzling and raises questions regarding the roles of...[Show more]
