  1. pmc C4 photosynthesis at low temperature. A study using transgenic plants with reduced amounts of Rubisco
    David S Kubien
    Department of Botany, University of Toronto, 25 Willcocks Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S 3B2
    Plant Physiol 132:1577-85. 2003
    ..On the basis of these results, we propose that the lack of C(4) success in cool climates reflects a constraint imposed by having less Rubisco than their C(3) competitors...
  2. ncbi request reprint The temperature response of C(3) and C(4) photosynthesis
    Rowan F Sage
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto, 25 Willcocks Street, Toronto, ON M5S3B2 Canada
    Plant Cell Environ 30:1086-106. 2007
    ..Limitations in electron transport and Rubisco activase capacity should be more common in the warmer, high CO(2) conditions expected by the end of the century...
  3. doi request reprint Rubisco, Rubisco activase, and global climate change
    Rowan F Sage
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada M5S 3B2
    J Exp Bot 59:1581-95. 2008
    ..Because black spruce is the dominant species in the boreal forest of North America, Rubisco activase may be an unusually important factor determining the response of the boreal biome to climate change...

    David S Kubien
    Dept of Botany, University of Toronto, 25 Willcocks St, M5S 3B2, Toronto, ON, Canada
    Oecologia 137:330-7. 2003
    ..In these cool northern climates M. glomerata apparently persists because sufficient periods of temperatures favourable to C(4) photosynthesis occur, but this persistence likely requires some factor that suppresses the woody vegetation...
  5. doi request reprint The temperature response of photosynthesis in tobacco with reduced amounts of Rubisco
    David S Kubien
    Department of Biology, University of New Brunswick, 10 Bailey Dr, Fredericton, NB, Canada
    Plant Cell Environ 31:407-18. 2008
    ..Our observations are consistent with the hypothesis that the high temperature decline in A in the WT is because of an RuBP regeneration limitation, rather than the capacity of Rubisco activase to maintain high Rubisco activation state...

    Department of Biology, The University of New Brunswick, Box 4400, Fredericton, New Brunswick, E3B 5A3, Canada
    J Exp Bot 59:1767-77. 2008
    ..However, the statistical significance of these relationships was influenced by the phylogenetic relatedness of the species...
