Manipulating ribulose biphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase in the chloroplasts of higher plants

Andrews, Thomas; Whitney, Spencer


Transgenic manipulation of the photosynthetic CO2-fixing enzyme, ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) in higher plants provides a very specific means of testing theories about photosynthesis and its regulation. It also encourages prospects for radically improving the efficiencies with which photosynthesis and plants use the basic resources of light, water, and nutrients. Manipulation was once limited to variation of the leaf's total content of Rubisco by transforming the...[Show more]
