The occurrence of the different genes encoding ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO), the key enzyme of the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle of autotrophic CO(2) fixation, was investigated in the members of the genus Thiomicrospira and the relative genus Thioalkalimicrobium, all obligately chemolithoautotrophic sulfur-oxidizing Gammaproteobacteria. The cbbL gene encoding the 'green-like' form I RubisCO large subunit was found in all analysed species, while the cbbM gene encoding… CONTINUE READING
