Carbon and nitrogen fixation and metabolite exchange in and between individual cells of Anabaena oscillarioides
Filamentous nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria are key players in global nutrient cycling, but the relationship between CO"2- and N"2-fixation and intercellular exchange of these elements remains poorly understood in many genera. Using high-resolution nanometer-scale secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS) in conjunction with enriched H13CO"3- and 15N"2 incubations of Anabaena oscillarioides, we imaged the cellular distributions of C, N and P and 13C and 15N enrichments at multiple time points...[Show more]
