Phylogeny and evolution of the ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase genes in prokaryotes

Abstract

The review considers the phylogeny and evolution of ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO), which is the key enzyme of the autotrophic Calvin-Benson cycle and the most abundant protein on Earth. RuBisCO occurs in several structural and functional forms, including fully functional forms I, II, and III, which catalyze carboxylation… (More)
