Rieske Iron-Sulfur Isoforms in a Unicellular Cyanobacterium
Rieske iron-sulfur proteins (ISPs) are integrally involved in photosynthetic electron transport chains and thus closely linked to energy production and its regulation in cyanobacteria and plant chloroplasts. The cyanobacterium ...
Multiple Rieske Iron Sulfur Proteins of Photosynthesis in the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis SP PCC 6803
The cytochrome bf complex is essential for both photosynthetic and respiratory electron transport in cyanobacteria. A Rieske iron-sulfur protein (ISP) is an essential subunit of this complex. The cyanobacterium, Synechocystis ...
REDOX REGULATION OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS BY THE CYTOCHROME bf COMPLEX: MECHANISMS AND CONSEQUENCES
Photosynthesis is a fundamental and central metabolic process of our planet. Honed by billions of years of evolution, it forms the basis for the food chain that sustains our ecosphere. Photosynthesis begins with sunlight ...
Whole-genome gene expression profiling in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 : impacts of electron transfer mutations and low CO₂ stress
Cyanobacteria are the ancestors of plant chloroplasts and perform ~25% of global photosynthesis. The photosynthetic reaction center complexes (PSII and PSI) capture solar energy to catalyze a series of electron transfer, ...
Cyclic electron transfer pathways in SYNECHOCOCCUS Sp. PCC 7002 cyanobacteria during photosynthesis at high light intensity
With current global warming, there is growing interest in coupling carbon dioxide (CO2) capture to chemical synthesis via photosynthesis. Cyanobacteria convert up to 10% of the sun's energy into biomass compared to 1% by ...
