CO2 concentrating mechanisms in cyanobacteria: Molecular components, their diversity and evolution

Badger, Murray; Price, Graeme (Dean)

Description

Cyanobacteria have evolved an extremely effective single-cell CO2 concentrating mechanism (CCM). Recent molecular, biochemical and physiological studies have significantly extended current knowledge about the genes and protein components of this system and how they operate to elevate CO2 around Rubisco during photosynthesis. The CCM components include at least four modes of active inorganic carbon uptake, including two bicarbonate transporters and two CO2 uptake systems associated with the...[Show more]
