Expanding knowledge of the Rubisco kinetics variability in plant species: environmental and evolutionary trends

Galmes, Jeroni; Kapralov, Maxim; Andralojc, P. John; Conesa, Miquel À.; Keys, Alfred J.; Parry, Martin; Flexas, Jaume


The present study characterizes the kinetic properties of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) from 28 terrestrial plant species, representing different phylogenetic lineages, environmental adaptations and photosynthetic mechanisms. Our findings confirm that past atmospheric CO2/O2 ratio changes and present environmental pressures have influenced Rubisco kinetics. One evolutionary adaptation to a decreasing atmospheric CO2/O2 ratio has been an increase in the affinity of...[Show more]
