Ribulose-Bisphosphate Carboxylase (Rubisco)

A copper protein that catalyzes the formation of 2 moles of 3-phosphoglycerate from ribulose 1,5-biphosphate in the presence of carbon dioxide. It utilizes oxygen instead of carbon dioxide to form 2-phosphoglycollate and 3-phosphoglycerate. EC

01/01/2014 - "In conclusion, biochemical limitations likely related to the reduced activity of Rubisco, rather than diffusive limitations, were the main factor associated with decreases in A during the infection process of P. "
02/01/2005 - "This indicated that virus infection caused the decreases of Rubisco and RCA in host plant, which then affected plant photosynthesis."

01/01/2013 - "The infection reduced light saturation point, net photosynthesis at saturating irradiances, apparent quantum yield, CO2 saturated rate of photosynthesis, carboxylation efficiency, the maximum carboxylation rate of Rubisco, and maximum light-saturated rate of electron transport, and increased light compensation point in host leaves similarly across nitrate levels, corresponding to a similar magnitude of negative effects of the parasite on host leaf soluble protein and Rubisco concentrations, photosynthetic nitrogen use efficiency and stomatal conductance across nitrate concentrations. "
08/01/2011 - "Data obtained with saspases implicate them in the proteolytic degradation of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) during biotic and abiotic PCD, whereas phytaspase overproducing and silenced transgenics provide evidence that phytaspase regulates PCD during both abiotic (oxidative and osmotic stresses) and biotic (virus infection) insults.
