Photorespiration: current status and approaches for metabolic engineering.

Abstract

Photorespiration results from the oxygenase reaction catalysed by ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase and serves as a carbon recovery system. It comprises enzymatic reactions distributed in chloroplasts, peroxisomes and mitochondria. The recent discovery of a cytosolic bypass and the requirement of complex formation between some photorespiratory… (More)
