Microalgae are receiving increasing attention as alternative production systems for renewable energy such as biofuel. The photosynthetic alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is widely recognized as the model system to study all aspects of algal physiology, including the molecular mechanisms underlying the accumulation of starch and triacylglycerol (TAG), which(More)
Type-II NAD(P)H dehydrogenases form a multigene family that comprise six members in the green microalga Chlamydomonas. To date, only one enzyme (Nda2) located in the chloroplast has been characterized in this alga and demonstrated to participate in the reduction of the plastoquinone pool. We present here the functional characterization of Nda1. The enzyme(More)
