Abstract

The properties, distribution, biogenesis, function, and regulation of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase, as described elsewhere in this Symposium, are mainly integrated around the mechanism of action of the carboxylase and oxygenase reactions. Recently, interest has been stimulated by the discovery of the oxygenase reaction (1, 2) and its role in the glycolate pathway of photorespiration (3), and by the desirability of differential regulation of the carboxylase and oxygenase activities, if possible, in favor of the former in order to increase photosynthetic productivity. A prerequisite for such regulation is a thorough knowledge of the relationships between structure and function in this protein.
