Evolving Methanococcoides burtonii archaeal Rubisco for improved photosynthesis and plant growth
Improving the performance of the CO2-fixing enzyme Rubisco has the potential to significantly enhance photosynthetic efficiency and yield1. Strategies to achieve this goal involve either modifying the biochemistry and ultrastructure of leaf chloroplasts to concentrate CO2 around Rubisco, or directly improving Rubisco catalysis itself by genetic crossing or transgenic modification2. While both approaches face significant technical challenges, suggestions that Rubisco in plants is already...[Show more]
