Identification of an ATP-binding cassette transporter involved in bicarbonate uptake in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC7942

Omata, Tatsuo; Price, Graeme (Dean); Badger, Murray; Okamura, Masato; Gohta, Satoshi; Ogawa, Teruo


Exposure of cells of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) grown under high- CO2 conditions to inorganic C-limitation induces transcription of particular genes and expression of high-affinity CO2 and HCO3- transport systems. Among the low-CO2-inducible transcription units of Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 is the cmpABCD operon, encoding an ATP-binding cassette transporter similar to the nitrate/nitrite transporter of the same cyanobacterium. A nitrogen-regulated promoter was used to selectively...[Show more]
