In cyanobacteria, the elevation of unsaturated fatty acid levels in membrane lipids has been shown to play a major role in the response to temperature change. The cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis(More)
Spirulina-acyl-lipid desaturases are integral membrane proteins found in thylakoid and plasma membranes. These enzymes catalyze the fatty acid desaturation process of Spirulina to yield γ-linolenic(More)
This study addresses the importance of a heat-shock-responsive cis-acting DNA element and its transcriptional regulator, which play key roles in the regulation of the Spirulina-desD gene on exposure(More)
In the cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis, the desaturation process is carried out by three desaturases: the Δ9, Δ12 and Δ6 desaturases, encoded by desC, desA and desD, respectively. The Δ6(More)
