Form 1 Rubiscos from non-green algae are expressed abundantly but not assembled in tobacco chloroplasts

Whitney, Spencer; Baldet, Pierre Andre Claude; Hudson, G; Andrews, Thomas


Non-green algae have Rubiscos that are phylogenetically distinct from their counterparts in green algae and higher plants. Some non-green-algal Rubiscos are more specific for CO2, relative to O2, than higher-plant Rubiscos, sometimes coupled with lower Michaelis constants for CO2. If these Rubiscos could be substituted for the higher-plant enzyme, and if they functioned successfully in the higher-plant chloroplast and were regulated appropriately, they would improve the CO2 use and quantum...[Show more]
