Overexpression of the Rieske FeS protein of the Cytochrome b₆f complex increases C₄ photosynthesis in Setaria viridis

Ermakova, Maria; Lopez-Calcagno, Patricia E.; Raines, Christine; Furbank, Robert; von Caemmerer, Susanne


C₄ photosynthesis is characterised by a CO₂ concentrating mechanism that operates between mesophyll and bundle sheath cells increasing CO₂ partial pressure at the site of Rubisco and photosynthetic efficiency. Electron transport chains in both cell types supply ATP and NADPH for C₄ photosynthesis. Cytochrome b₆f is a key control point of electron transport in C₃ plants. To study whether C₄ photosynthesis is limited by electron transport we constitutively overexpressed the Rieske FeS subunit...[Show more]
