Progress and challenges of engineering a biophysical carbon dioxide-concentrating mechanism into higher plants

Rae, Benjamin; Long, Benedict; Förster, Britta; Nguyen, Nghiem Dinh; Velanis, Christos N; Atkinson, Nicky; Hee, Wei Yih; Mukherjee, Bratati; Price, Graeme; McCormick, Alistair


Growth and productivity in important crop plants is limited by the inefficiencies of the C3 photosynthetic pathway. Introducing CO2-concentrating mechanisms (CCMs) into C3 plants could overcome these limitations and lead to increased yields. Many unicellular microautotrophs, such as cyanobacteria and green algae, possess highly efficient biophysical CCMs that increase CO2 concentrations around the primary carboxylase enzyme, Rubisco, to enhance CO2 assimilation rates. Algal and cyanobacterial...[Show more]
