PS Webinar Series: PhD Exit Seminar - Putting Rubisco into a carboxysome.

Abstract - This thesis aimed to resolve how cyanobacterial Rubisco interacts with its binding partners both in vivo and in vitro. Cyanobacterial Rubisco has been found to require different chaperonins and chaperones for optimal folding, however, in cyanobacteria the Rubisco enzyme must also interact with a cognate binding partner to produce the bacterial microcompartment known as the carboxysome. Work presented here examines and elucidates the interactions between cyanobacterial Rubisco and its cognate binding partners, to further our understanding of carboxysome biogenesis.
