COS as rubisco-substrate

Dear Netters,

discussing dark-reactions with a chemist recently, I was asked whether
rubisco could make use of COS instead of CO2 (and O2) as a substrate.
Such a reaction might have been used for tracing metabolites before
radioactive isotopes were available. Does anyone of you remember such
experiments/references? Thanks in advance.
