Genetically engineered chloroplasts have an extraordinary capacity to accumulate recombinant proteins. We have investigated in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) the possible consequences of such additional products on several parameters of plant development and composition. Plastid transformants were analyzed that express abundantly either bacterial enzymes,(More)
The enzyme p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD) catalyzes the formation of homogentisic acid, the aromatic precursor of plastoquinone and vitamin E. HPPD is the specific target of several herbicide families: isoxazoles, triketones and pyroxazoles. Its inhibition results in the depletion of the plant plastoquinone and vitamin E pools, leading to(More)
Phytoplankton dynamics and diversity are particularly difficult to analyze, especially when (i) the scale of the analysis is situated at the species level, (ii) such a diversity is high, (iii) the study covers several seasons, and (iv) sampling has been performed at many stations of the ecosystem. Fortunately, some powerful statistical methods have been(More)
We used the flow sorting capacities of a benchtop FACSCalibur flow cytometer to analyze the phytoplankton community of four different aquatic ecosystems. We show that despite the high optical, mechanistic, and hydrodynamic stress for the cells while sorted, most of the targeted populations could be isolated and grew in mixed culture media subsequent to(More)
