The basic question addressed in this study is how energy metabolism is adjusted to cope with iron deficiency in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. To investigate the impact of iron deficiency on bioenergetic pathways, comparative proteomics was combined with spectroscopic as well as voltametric oxygen measurements to assess protein dynamics linked to functional(More)
Iron deficiency induces a remodeling of the photosynthetic apparatus in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. In this study we showed that a key mechanistic event in the remodeling process of photosystem I (PSI) and its associated light-harvesting proteins (LHCI) is the N-terminal processing of Lhca3. N-terminal processing of Lhca3 is documented independently by(More)
The versatile metabolism of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is reflected in its complex response to anaerobic conditions. The anaerobic response is also remarkable in the context of renewable energy because C. reinhardtii is able to produce hydrogen under anaerobic conditions. To identify proteins involved during anaerobic acclimation as well as to(More)
A new high-throughput computational strategy was established that improves genomic data mining from MS experiments. The MS/MS data were analyzed by the SEQUEST search algorithm and a combination of de novo amino acid sequencing in conjunction with an error-tolerant database search tool, operating on a 256 processor computer cluster. The error-tolerant(More)
Ferritin is a key player in the iron homeostasis due to its ability to store large quantities of iron. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii contains two nuclear genes for ferritin (ferr1 and ferr2) that are induced when Chlamydomonas cells are shifted to iron-deficient conditions. In response to the reduced iron availability, degradation of photosystem I (PSI) and(More)
Despite the importance of trace metal availability for plant life, the complex intracellular mechanisms to regulate trace metal homeostasis are still poorly understood to date. Such regulatory networks have to comprise the sensing, storage and detoxification of metals as well as the incorporation of metal and metal containing cofactors into proteins. The(More)
Despite its large size and the numerous processes in which it is implicated, neither the identity nor the functions of the proteins targeted to the yeast vacuole have been defined comprehensively. In order to establish a methodological platform and protein inventory to address this shortfall, we refined techniques for the purification of 'proteomics-grade'(More)
Comparison and identification of mitochondrial matrix proteins from wild-type and cysteine desulfurase-defective (nfs1-14, carrying a hypomorphic allele of NFS1) yeast strains, using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled to mass spectrometry analyses, revealed large changes in the amounts of various proteins. Protein spots that were specifically(More)
We used isotope dilution MS to measure the stoichiometry of light-harvesting complex I (LHCI) proteins with the photosystem I (PSI) core complex in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Proteotypic peptides served as quantitative markers for each of the nine gene products (Lhca1-9) and for PSI subunits. The quantitative data revealed that the LHCI(More)
The soil bacterium Arthrobacter nitroguajacolicus Rü61a contains the linear plasmid pAL1, which codes for the degradation of 2-methylquinoline. Like other linear replicons of actinomycetes, pAL1 is characterized by short terminal inverted-repeat sequences and terminal proteins (TPpAL1) covalently attached to its 5' ends. TPpAL1, encoded by the pAL1.102(More)
