Carbonic anhydrase and C4 photosynthesis a transgenic analysis
Carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC 220.127.116.11) catalyses the first reaction in the C4 photosynthetic pathway, the conversion of atmospheric CO 2 to bicarbonate in the mesophyll cytosol. To examine the importance of the enzyme to the functioning of the C4 photosynthetic pathway, Flaveria bidentis (L.) Kuntze, a C4 dicot, was genetically transformed with an antisense construct in which the cDNA encoding a putative cytosolic CA (CA3) was placed under the control of a constitutive promoter. Some of the...[Show more]
