carboxylation

 [kahr-bok″sil-a´shun]
the addition of a carboxyl group, as to pyruvate to form oxaloacetate.

car·box·yl·a·tion

(kar-bok'si-lā'shŭn),
Addition of CO2 to an organic acceptor, as in formation of malonyl-CoA or in photosynthesis, to yield a -COOH group; catalyzed by carboxylases.

carboxylation

/car·box·y·la·tion/ (kahr-bok″sĭ-la´shun) the addition of carbon dioxide or bicarbonate to form a carboxyl group, as to pyruvate to form oxaloacetate.

carboxylation

[-lā′shən]
a chemical process in which a carboxyl group (COOH) replaces a hydrogen atom.

Addition of CO2 to an organic acceptor to yield a -COOH group; catalyzed by carboxylases.

carboxylation

the addition of carboxyl (COOH) or carbon dioxide into a molecule as, for example, when carbon dioxide is added to ribulose diphosphate (C5) in the CALVIN CYCLE to give an unstable C6 product.
