Title: Partial support of a workshop entitled Rubisco '87, ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase genes, proteins and the regulation of activity. Final performance report

Abstract

An international workshop on the properties of the ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) and its involvement in photosynthesis was held in Tucson, AZ on April 20-25, 1987. Attending were 100 participants with 42 invited speakers coming from the US, Europe (England, France, West Germany, Sweden, Denmark), Japan and Australia. All aspects of this key enzyme in photosynthesis was discussed with much new information presented. New aspects on the regulation of CO/sub 2/ fixation activity was presented including the role of the Rubisco activase and 2-C-carboxyarabinitol 1-phosphate in intact leaves. The biochemistry of the protein subunits was discussed with emphasis on the function of the small subunit. Advances on the three dimensional structure with overlap of each active site on a neighboring subunit was described. The expression of the genes, similarities in the protein structure and their genetics was compared. Various aspects of the transport of the small subunit precursor into the chloroplast and its assembly into the holoenzyme were also discussed.
