Term of Carboxydismutase

Term of Carboxydismutase:

(RuBP carboxylase) involved in catalysing carboxylation of ribulose 1.5 biphosphate to 2-molecules of phosphoglyceric acid during dark reaction of photosynthesis this enzyme acts as oxygenase to form one molecule of phosphoglyceric acid and one phosphoglycollic acid from RuBP and oxygen molecules in presence of excess oxygen. This reaction is the basis of photorespiration.
