Redefinition of rubisco carboxylase reaction reveals origin of water for hydration and new roles for active-site residues

Kannappan, Babu; Gready, Jill


Crystallographic, mutagenesis, kinetic, and computational studies on Rubisco over three decades have revealed much about its catalytic mechanism and the role played by several active-site residues. However, key questions remain unanswered. Specific details of the carboxylase and oxygenase mechanisms, required to underpin the rational re-engineering of Rubisco, are still speculative. Here we address critical gaps in knowledge with a definitive comprehensive computational investigation of the...[Show more]
