Genetic dissection of Rubisco structure and function

Genetic dissection of Rubisco structure and function

Annual Review of Plant Physiology and Plant Molecular Biology 44: 411-434

After an introductory section on the characteristics of ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase (Rubisco) in plants, its genetics are considered with reference to selecting for a better enzyme and screening for mutations. Mutations of the large-subunit are discussed by referring to recovery and holoenzyme stability, loop-1 and loop-6 regions, activator lysine, chimaeras and deletions. Directed mutagenesis and hybrid enzymes are considered in relation to small-subunit mutations.
