The present research addresses the question of whether Rubisco activase (R-A), the enzyme reported to activate Rubisco, is actually a molecular chaperone rather than a conventional enzyme. Several biochemical properties known to be characteristics of molecular chaperones were tested for R-A with positive results. The experiments were performed either in vitro with purified spinach Rubisco and Rubisco activase or in vivo in maize seedling leaves. Our results confirmed that activation of Rubisco… CONTINUE READING
