C4 phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylases have evolved from ancestral C3 isoforms during the evolution of angiosperms and gained distinct kinetic and regulatory properties compared with the C3 isozymes. To(More)
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPCase, EC 4.1.1.3) is a key enzyme of C(4) photosynthesis. It has evolved from ancestral non-photosynthetic (C(3)) isoforms and thereby changed its kinetic and(More)

C4 phosphoenolpyruvate (P-pyruvate) carboxylases have evolved from ancestral C3 P-pyruvate carboxylases during the evolution of C4 photosynthesis (Lepiniec et al., 1994). To meet the requirements of(More)
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) was purified from leaves of four species of Alternanthera differing in their photosynthetic carbon metabolism: Alternanthera sessilis (C3), A. pungens (C4), A.(More)
