Increased Lipid Accumulation in the Chlamydomonas reinhardtiista7-10 Starchless Isoamylase Mutant and Increased Carbohydrate Synthesis in Complemented Strains
ABSTRACT The accumulation of bioenergy carriers was assessed in two starchless mutants of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (the sta6 [ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase] and sta7-10 [isoamylase] mutants), aExpand
Aquatic phototrophs: efficient alternatives to land-based crops for biofuels.
To mitigate some of the potentially deleterious environmental and agricultural consequences associated with current land-based-biofuel feedstocks, we propose the use of biofuels derived from aquaticExpand
Photosynthesis: a blueprint for solar energy capture and biohydrogen production technologies.
Solar energy capture, conversion into chemical energy and biopolymers by photoautotrophic organisms, is the basis for almost all life on Earth. A broad range of organisms have developed complexExpand
The origin of atmospheric oxygen on Earth: The innovation of oxygenic photosynthesis
The evolution of O2-producing cyanobacteria that use water as terminal reductant transformed Earth's atmosphere to one suitable for the evolution of aerobic metabolism and complex life. TheExpand
Intermediates of a polynuclear manganese center involved in photosynthetic oxidation of water.
Electron paramagnetic resonance of spinach chloroplasts given a series of laser flashes, n = 0, 1,..., 6, at room temperature and rapidly cooled to -140 degrees C reveals a signal possessing at leastExpand

The purpose of this article is twofold. First, to review the recent literature dealing with the mechanisms of catalysis by binuclear manganese enzymes. Second, to summarize and illustrate the generalExpand
Altered carbohydrate metabolism in glycogen synthase mutants of Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7002: Cell factories for soluble sugars.
Glycogen and compatible solutes are the major polymeric and soluble carbohydrates in cyanobacteria and function as energy reserves and osmoprotectants, respectively. Glycogen synthase null mutantsExpand
Light‐dependent oxygen consumption in nitrogen‐fixing cyanobacteria plays a key role in nitrogenase protection 1
All colonial diazotrophic cyanobacteria are capable of simultaneously evolving O2 through oxygenic photosynthesis and fixing nitrogen via nitrogenase. Since nitrogenase is irreversibly inactivated byExpand
An LC-MS-based chemical and analytical method for targeted metabolite quantification in the model cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002.
Herein, we detail the development of a method for the chemical isolation and tandem LC-MS/MS quantification of a targeted subset of internal metabolites from cyanobacteria. We illustrate theExpand
Oxidized quinones signal onset of darkness directly to the cyanobacterial circadian oscillator
Synchronization of the circadian clock in cyanobacteria with the day/night cycle proceeds without an obvious photoreceptor, leaving open the question of its specific mechanism. The circadianExpand
