Transplastomic integration of a cyanobacterial bicarbonate transporter into tobacco chloroplasts

Pengelly, Jasper; Forster, Britta; von Caemmerer, Susanne; Badger, Murray; Price, Graeme (Dean); Whitney, Spencer


Improving global yields of agricultural crops is a complex challenge with evidence indicating benefits in productivity are achieved by enhancing photosynthetic carbon assimilation. Towards improving rates of CO2 capture within leaf chloroplasts, this study shows the versatility of plastome transformation for expressing the Synechococcus PCC7002 BicA bicarbonate transporter within tobacco plastids. Fractionation of chloroplast membranes from transplastomic tobBicA lines showed that ∼75% of the...[Show more]
