The state-of-art and the further possibility of research on rubisco (ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygnase) were discussed. Rubisco activitics in crude enzyme extracts were measured in about 37 species, and the rubisco protein was purified from only 7 species because of difficulties result from the tissue mucilage, toughness and low protein content. The biochemical characteristics and kinetics of rhodophytic rubisco were some what different from those of other seaweeds and land plants. More research on protein and gene basis is required to fully elucidate the overall features of seaweeds rubisco.
Key words: Kinetics, purification, rubisco, seaweeds
