A Minimized Cyanobacterial Microcompartment for CO2 Fixation

Executive SummaryCarboxysomes form an essential part of the cyanobacterial CO2 concentrating mechanism which reduces losses from photorespiration and increases the tolerance to low external CO2 concentrations. This efficiency-enhancing mechanism cannot be found in algae or higher plants, where it may be used to increase photosynthetic efficiency or...
