Investigating the NAD-ME biochemical pathway within C4 grasses using transcript and amino acid variation in C4 photosynthetic genes

Watson-Lazowski, Alex; Papanicolaou, Alexie; Sharwood, Robert; Ghannoum, Oula

Description

Expanding knowledge of the C4 photosynthetic pathway can provide key information to aid biological improvements to crop photosynthesis and yield. While the C4 NADP-ME pathway is well characterised, there is increasing agricultural and bioengineering interest in the comparably understudied NAD-ME and PEPCK pathways. Within this study, a systematic identification of key differences across species has allowed us to investigate the evolution of C4-recruited genes in one C3 and eleven C4 grasses...[Show more]
