Inorganic carbon limitation and light control the expression of transcripts related to the CO2-concentrating mechanism in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. strain PCC6803

McGinn, P; Price, Graeme (Dean); Maleszka, Ryszard; Badger, Murray


The cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. strain PCC6803 possesses three modes of inorganic carbon (Ci) uptake that are inducible under Ci stress and that dramatically enhance the efficiency of the CO2-concentrating mechanism (CCM). The effects of Ci limitation on the mRNA transcript abundance of these inducible uptake systems and on the physiological expression of the CCM were investigated in detail in this cyanobacterium. Transcript abundance was assessed with semiquantitative and real-time...[Show more]
