Now, USDA-ARS scientists are collaborating to crystallize rubisco activase.
The team discovered the existence of rubisco activase in 1985 and proved that it activates rubisco.
Large subunit of Rubisco (53kDa) and small subunit of Rubisco which appears as 2 bands (~14kDa) in the pH range of 7-7.6 were easily recognisable in white light grown seedlings (Fig.
'Till Rubisco brought these two together at last And in one magical moment of chemistry They were joined as one and seemed to have a blast.
Antibodies raised against the large subunit of RuBisCO have been shown
Recently, Dr Tim Schmidt joined CSIRO to pursue the computational modelling of rubisco, a key photosynthetic enzyme for carbon fixation, along with Collings and Dr Peter Vohralik.
Many autotrophic bacteria maximize their carbon dioxide fixation potential by sequestering much of their ribulose-1,5- bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO) inside inclusions called carboxysomes.
The new protein is called Rubisco and could be used as a substitute for soya (which is mainly imported from the US, Argentina and Brazil) as a vegetable protein in the food industry or as a concentrate for animal food.
We compare in vivo gas-exchange data and in vitro RUBISCO activity for a holoparasite (Orobanche corymbosa), a hemiparasite (Pedicularis canadensis), and a nonparasite (Antirrhinum majus) in the family Scrophulariaceae.
(1994) found that a decline in [A.sub.net] with increased growth temperature was associated with a reduction in the synthesis of ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase (RUBISCO) for a variety of species.
This depletion is regulated by the rate at which C[O.sub.2] diffuses into the leaf and is fixed by ribulose-1, 5 bis-phosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO).
The properties of the carbon-fixing enzyme Rubisco (ribulose-1:5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase) limit the efficiency of photosynthesis in land plants.
