Inorganic carbon transporters of the cyanobacterial CO2 concentrating mechanism

Price, Graeme (Dean)


Cyanobacteria possess an environmental adaptation known as a CO2 concentrating mechanism (CCM) that evolved to improve photosynthetic performance, particularly under CO2-limiting conditions. The CCM functions to actively transport dissolved inorganic carbon species (Ci; HCO3- and CO2) resulting in accumulation of a pool of HCO3- within the cell that is then utilised to provide an elevated CO2 concentration around the primary CO2 fixing enzyme, ribulose bisphosphate carboxylaseoxygenase...[Show more]
