Phylogenetic analyses of various euglenoid taxa (euglenozoa) based on 18s rdna sequence data
TLDR
All trees derived from SSU rRNA data strongly supported the monophyletic origin of the Euglenozoa, with kinetoplastids as sister clade to the euglenoids and Petalomonas cantuscygni Cann et Pennick diverging at the base of the monophysletic eUGlenoid lineage. Expand
ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF PARAMYLON SYNTHASE FROM EUGLENA GRACILIS (EUGLENOPHYCEAE)1,
TLDR
Fractionated purification showed that the main enzyme activity was associated with the paramylon granula fraction, and the complex remained active throughout the isolation procedures and produced beta‐1,3‐glucan in vitro. Expand
A mutant of the cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis ATCC 29413 lacking cyanophycin synthetase: growth properties and ultrastructural aspects.
TLDR
It is concluded that cyanophycin metabolism and polar nodules are not essential for aerobic N(2) fixation and that Anabaena variabilis ATCC 29413 grew as fast as the wild-type irrespective of the nitrogen source at low light intensity. Expand
Phylogenetic position and inter-relationships of the osmotrophic euglenids based on SSU rDNA data, with emphasis on the Rhabdomonadales (Euglenozoa).
TLDR
The inter-relationship of the three distinct euglenozoan taxa (euglenids, kinetoplastids and diplonemids) could not be convincingly resolved by this study. Expand
Ca2+-requirement for a blue-light-induced chloroplast translocation inEremosphaera viridis
TLDR
Ulastructural investigation of Eremosphaera reveals a very characteristic, multilayered and highly-ordered cell wall, which suggests that the translocation is regulated by calcium. Expand
Immunocytochemical localization of IdiA, a protein expressed under iron or manganese limitation in the mesophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC 6301 and the thermophilic cyanobacterium
TLDR
All available data support a function of IdiA as an Mn-binding protein that facilitates transport of Mn via the thylakoid membrane into the lumen to provide photosystem II with Mn. Expand
Isolation, partial characterization and localization of a dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803.
TLDR
Immunoblot experiments indicated that the enzyme is mainly present in the membrane fraction, and immunocytochemical investigations gave evidence that the LPD in Synechocystis PCC 6803 is located in the periplasma space between the cytoplasma membrane and the peptidoglycan layer, the first report on an extracellular, membrane-bound L PD in a cyanobacterium. Expand
Interrelation between Cyanophycin Synthesis, L-Arginine Catabolism and Photosynthesis in the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis Sp. Strain PCC 6803
TLDR
Results suggest a complex interrelation between cyanophycin synthesis, ʟ-arginine catabolism, and in addition photosynthesis in Synechocystis PCC 6803. Expand
Immunocytological and chemical studies on the stromacentre-forming protein from Avena plastids
TLDR
Immunoelectrophoretical investigations demonstrated a strong correlation between the presence of the 63-kDa protein and the occurrence of the SC in different Avena species with and without SC. Expand
Secondary Carotenoids of Eremosphaera viridis De Bary (Chlorophyceae) Under Nitrogen Deficiency
Under nitrogen deficiency the unicellular chlorococcalean green alga, Eremosphaera viridis De Bary, was able to synthesize secondary carotenoids (SC). Nine SC were identified as six astaxanthinExpand
