Abstract

Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) is the enzyme assimilating CO2 in biology. Despite serious efforts, using many different methods, a detailed understanding of activity and regulation in Rubisco still eludes us. New results in X-ray crystallography may provide a structural framework on which to base experimental approaches for more detailed analyses of the function of Rubisco at the molecular level. This article gives a critical review of the field and summarizes recent results from structural studies of Rubisco.
