Hi.  Can anyone steer me toward one or two key articles on the evolution of
rubisco?  A student asked my why rubisco could add either an oxygen or
carbon dioxide to RuBP and, other than the fact that rubisco must have first
appeared in the anaerobic primitive atmosphere, I couldn't address his
question.  Thanks.
