The biphasic reaction course, fallover, of carboxylation catalysed by ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO) has been known as a characteristic of the enzyme from higher land plants. Fallover consists of hysteresis in the reaction seen during the initial several minutes and a very slow suicide inhibition by inhibitors formed from the substrate ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP). This study examined the relationship between occurrence of fallover and non-catalytic RuBP-binding… CONTINUE READING
