THE DIVERSITY AND COEVOLUTION OF RUBISCO, PLASTIDS, PYRENOIDS, AND CHLOROPLAST-BASED CO2-CONCENTRATING MECHANISMS IN ALGAE
Algae have adopted two primary strategies to maximize the performance of Rubisco in photosynthetic CO2 fixation. This has included either the development of a CO2-concentrating mechanism (CCM), basedExpand

Advances in understanding the cyanobacterial CO2-concentrating-mechanism (CCM): functional components, Ci transporters, diversity, genetic regulation and prospects for engineering into plants.
Cyanobacteria have evolved a significant environmental adaptation, known as a CO(2)-concentrating-mechanism (CCM), that vastly improves photosynthetic performance and survival under limiting CO(2)Expand

Internal Inorganic Carbon Pool of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: EVIDENCE FOR A CARBON DIOXIDE-CONCENTRATING MECHANISM.
The external inorganic carbon pool (CO(2) + HCO(3) (-)) was measured in both high and low CO(2)-grown cells of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, using a silicone oil layer centrifugal filtering technique.Expand

Multiple Rubisco forms in proteobacteria: their functional significance in relation to CO2 acquisition by the CBB cycle.
Rubisco is the predominant enzymatic mechanism in the biosphere by which autotrophic bacteria, algae, and terrestrial plants fix CO(2) into organic biomass via the Calvin-Benson-Basham reductiveExpand

Functions, Compositions, and Evolution of the Two Types of Carboxysomes: Polyhedral Microcompartments That Facilitate CO2 Fixation in Cyanobacteria and Some Proteobacteria
SUMMARY Cyanobacteria are the globally dominant photoautotrophic lineage. Their success is dependent on a set of adaptations collectively termed the CO2-concentrating mechanism (CCM). The purpose ofExpand

Identification of a SulP-type bicarbonate transporter in marine cyanobacteria
Cyanobacteria possess a highly effective CO2-concentrating mechanism that elevates CO2 concentrations around the primary carboxylase, Rubisco (ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase). ThisExpand
