View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
A transgenic plant having enhanced photosynthesis is disclosed. The transgenic plant is transformed with a transgenic polynucleotide encoding a heterologous bicarbonate transporter. The bicarbonate transporter can be from an algae or a cyanobacterial species. The transgenic polynucleotide comprises a nucleic acid sequence encoding the bicarbonate transporter under the control of a functional plant promoter and optionally includes a chloroplast envelope targeting peptide heterologous to the bicarbonate transporter. Methods of making the transgenic plant and transgenic polynucleotide are disclosed.
