Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Photorespiration is an important high flux metabolic pathway that is found in all oxygen-producing photosynthetic organisms. It is often viewed as a closed loop that recycles carbon to fuel the Calvin cycle. However, the photorespiratory cycle is known to interact with several primary metabolic pathways, including photosynthesis, nitrate assimilation, amino acid metabolism, C1 metabolism and the TCA cycle. In this review we will describe recent advances in photorespiration research and discuss future priorities to better understand the metabolic integration of the photorespiratory cycle within the complex network of plant primary metabolism and the importance of photorespiration in response to abiotic and biotic stresses.
