Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) is a globally significant biocatalyst that facilitates the removal and sequestration of CO2 from the biosphere. Rubisco-catalyzed CO2 reduction thus provides virtually all of the organic carbon utilized by living organisms. Despite catalyzing the rate-limiting step of photosynthetic and chemoautotrophic CO2 assimilation, Rubisco is markedly inefficient as the competition between O2 and CO2 for the same substrate limits the ability… CONTINUE READING
