Linked Rubisco Subunits Can Assemble into Functional Oligomers without Impeding Catalytic Performance

Whitney, Spencer; Sharwood, Robert


Although transgenic manipulation in higher plants of the catalytic large subunit (L) of the photosynthetic CO2-fixing enzyme ribulose 1,5-bisphospahte carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) is now possible, the manipulation of its cognate small subunit (S) is frustrated by the nuclear location of its multiple gene copies. To examine whether L and S can be engineered simultaneously by fusing them together, the subunits from Synechococcus PCC6301 Rubisco were tethered together by different linker...[Show more]
