Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) is the cornerstone of photosynthetic carbon assimilation because it catalyses the fixation of CO2 onto ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP). The enzyme also catalyses RuBP oxygenation, thereby evolving phosphoglycolate which is recycled along the photorespiratory pathway. Oxygenation is quantitatively important, because under ordinary gaseous conditions, more than one third of RuBP molecules are oxygenated rather than carboxylated. However… CONTINUE READING
