Other name(s): D-ribulose 1,5-diphosphate carboxylase; D-ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase; RuBP carboxylase; carboxydismutase; diphosphoribulose carboxylase; ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase; ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase; ribulose 1,5-diphosphate carboxylase; ribulose 1,5-diphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase; ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase; ribulose diphosphate carboxylase; ribulose diphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase; rubisco; 3-phospho-D-glycerate carboxy-lyase (dimerizing)
Systematic name: 3-phospho-D-glycerate carboxy-lyase (dimerizing; D-ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate-forming)
Comments: Will utilize O2 instead of CO2, forming 3-phospho-D-glycerate and 2-phosphoglycolate.
