Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase / oxygenase (Rubisco) is the key enzyme involved in CO 2 fixation. It is an important enzyme for biomass production, especially for alternate energy production. Rubisco is an inefficient catalyst. Its carboxylase activity is compromised by numerous side-reactions including oxygenation of the sugar phosphate substrate by atmospheric O 2 . However, naturally occurring enzyme variants with different kinetic properties suggest that it is possible to alter the enzyme to be in …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
