Structural determinants of the outer shell of β-carboxysomes in synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942: roles for CcmK2, K3-K4, CcmO, and CcmL

Rae, Benjamin; Long, Benedict; Badger, Murray; Price, G. Dean


Cyanobacterial CO(2)-fixation is supported by a CO(2)-concentrating mechanism which improves photosynthesis by saturating the primary carboxylating enzyme, ribulose 1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO), with its preferred substrate CO(2). The site of CO(2)-concentration is a protein bound micro-compartment called the carboxysome which contains most, if not all, of the cellular RuBisCO. The shell of β-type carboxysomes is thought to be composed of two functional layers, with the...[Show more]
