Plant Rubisco biogenesis : a study of the requirements and processing steps during co- and post-translational modification of the large subunit

Orr, Douglas John


The production of chemical energy from light energy and C0{u2082} by photosynthesis is essential for life in the biosphere, and thus so is the activity of the often rate limiting CO{u2082}-fixing enzyme Rubisco (D-ribulose-l,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase). The importance of this 'gateway' enzyme for carbon entry into the biosphere, and it's apparent inherent flaws in catalysis, have made it a key target for improvement as a key step towards enhancing photosynthesis and agricultural yield...[Show more]
