Plastome-encoded bacterial ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO) supports photosynthesis and growth in tobacco.
The efficiency with which crop plants use their resources of light, water, and fertilizer nitrogen could be enhanced by replacing their CO2-fixing enzyme, D-ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase (RubisCO), with more efficient forms, such as those found in some algae, for example. This important challenge has been frustrated by failure of all previous attempts to substitute a fully functional, foreign RubisCO (efficient or inefficient) into higher plants. This failure could be caused...[Show more]
