Bathellier, Camille; Tcherkez, Guillaume; Lorimer, George H.; Farquhar, Graham


Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) is the most widespread carboxylating enzyme in autotrophic organisms. Its kinetic and structural properties have been intensively studied for more than half a century. Yet important aspects of the catalytic mechanism remain poorly understood, especially the oxygenase reaction. Because of its relatively modest turnover rate (a few catalytic events per second) and the competitive inhibition by oxygen, Rubisco is often viewed as an...[Show more]
