FAMILY
DESCRIPTION
Also known as RBS_PORAE, rbcS. RuBisCO catalyzes two reactions: the carboxylation of D-ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate, the primary event in carbon dioxide fixation, as well as the oxidative fragmentation of the pentose substrate. Both reactions occur simultaneously and in competition at the same active site (By similarity). 8 large chains + 8 small chains.
