Genetic variability in the large and small subunits of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBPCase) in several Nicotiana species has been characterized by isoelectric focusing patterns. This heritable variation provides an opportunity to examine the functional role of each of these subunits. In this study, specifically designed RuBPCase enzymes composed of identical large subunits but different small subunits were constructed in vivo by interspecific hybridization between the… CONTINUE READING
