2012/07/24 Rubisco content affects the photosynthetic metabolism in rice leaves

Dr. Suzuki and Prof. Makino (Laboratory of Plant Functional Nutrition), using transgenic rice plants with increased or decreased Rubisco content, revealed the limiting step in the Calvin cycle. These results will be useful for an improvement of photosynthesis in rice. This finding has been published in Plant, Cell & Environment in August, 2012.

Metabolome analysis of photosynthesis and the related primary metabolites in the leaves of transgenic rice plants with increased or decreased Rubisco content. Plant, Cell & Environment 35: 1369-1379.
