- ... The photosynthetic efficiency of C3 plants suffers from the reaction of ribulose 1,5‐bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) with O₂ instead of CO₂, leading to the costly process of photorespiration. Increasing the concentration of CO₂ around Rubisco is a strategy used by photosynthetic prokaryotes such as cyanobacteria for more efficient incorporation of inorganic carbon. Engineering the cya ...

- ... Carbon isotope discrimination (Δ) during C3 photosynthesis is dominated by the fractionation occurring during CO2-fixation by the enzyme Rubisco. While knowing the fractionation by enzymes is pivotal to fully understanding plant carbon metabolism, little is known about variation in the discrimination factor of Rubisco (b) as it is difficult to measure using existing in vitro methodologies.
