Characterisation of cyanobacterial bicarbonate transporters in E. coli shows that SbtA Homologs are functional in this heterologous expression system

Du, Jiahui; Förster, Britta; Rourke, Loraine; Howitt, Susan M.; Price, G. Dean


Cyanobacterial HCO3(-) transporters BCT1, SbtA and BicA are important components of cyanobacterial CO2-concentration mechanisms. They also show potential in applications aimed at improving photosynthetic rates and yield when expressed in the chloroplasts of C3 crop species. The present study investigated the feasibility of using Escherichia coli to assess function of a range of SbtA and BicA transporters in a heterologous expression system, ultimately for selection of transporters suitable for...[Show more]
