We have previously characterized RbcS antisense DNA mutants of tobacco that have drastic reductions in their content of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco; S.R. Rodermel, M.S. Abbott, L. Bogorad [1988] Cell 55: 673-681). In this report we examine the impact of Rubisco loss on photosynthesis during tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) leaf development. Photosynthetic capacities are depressed in the antisense leaves, but the patterns of change in photosynthetic rates during the… CONTINUE READING
