The operon encoding ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC7002 contains three rbc genes, rbcL, rbcX and rbcS, in this order. Introduction of translational frameshift into the rbcX gene resulted in a significant decrease in the production of large (RbcL) and small (RbcS) subunits of the Rubisco protein in Synechococcus sp. PCC7002 and in Escherichia coli. To investigate the function of the rbcX gene product (RbcX), we constructed the… CONTINUE READING
