Overexpression of Rubisco subunits with RAF1 increases Rubisco content in maize

Salesse-Smith, Coralie; Sharwood, Robert; Busch, Florian; Kromdijk, Johannes; Bardal, Viktoriya; Stern, David B


Rubisco catalyses a rate-limiting step in photosynthesis and has long been a target for improvement due to its slow turnover rate. An alternative to modifying catalytic properties of Rubisco is to increase its abundance within C4 plant chloroplasts, which might increase activity and confer a higher carbon assimilation rate. Here, we overexpress the Rubisco large (LS) and small (SS) subunits with the Rubisco assembly chaperone RUBISCO ASSEMBLY FACTOR 1 (RAF1). While overexpression of LS and/or...[Show more]
