Carboxysomes are proteinaceous biochemical compartments that constitute the enzymatic "back end" of the cyanobacterial CO2-concentrating mechanism. These protein-bound organelles catalyze HCO3- dehydration and photosynthetic CO2 fixation. In Synechocystis sp. strain PCC6803 these reactions involve the beta-class carbonic anhydrase (CA), CcaA, and Form 1B ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco). The surrounding shell is thought to be composed of proteins encoded by the ccmKLMN… CONTINUE READING
