Transgenic Introduction of a Glycolate Oxidative Cycle into A. thaliana Chloroplasts Leads to Growth Improvement

Maier, Alexandra; Fahnenstich, Holger; von Caemmerer, Susanne; Engqvist, Martin K. M.; Weber, Andreas P. M.; Flügge, Ulf-Ingo; Maurino, Veronica G.


The photorespiratory pathway helps illuminated C(3)-plants under conditions of limited CO(2) availability by effectively exporting reducing equivalents in form of glycolate out of the chloroplast and regenerating glycerate-3-P as substrate for RubisCO. On the other hand, this pathway is considered as probably futile because previously assimilated CO(2) is released in mitochondria. Consequently, a lot of effort has been made to reduce this CO(2) loss either by reducing fluxes via engineering...[Show more]
