BACKGROUND Hydrogen photo-production in green algae, catalyzed by the enzyme [FeFe]-hydrogenase (HydA), is considered a promising source of renewable clean energy. Yet, a significant increase in hydrogen production efficiency is necessary for industrial scale-up. We have previously shown that a major challenge to be resolved is the inferior competitiveness(More)
We have demonstrated previously that murine interferon-gamma (MuIFN-gamma) binds to the extracellular domain of the receptor alpha chain through its N-terminus and subsequently to the cytoplasmic domain of the receptor via its C-terminus. Binding of the C-terminus to the cytoplasmic domain of the receptor is thought to occur following endocytosis of the(More)
Photosynthetic hydrogen production in the microalga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is catalyzed by two [FeFe]-hydrogenase isoforms, HydA1 and HydA2, both irreversibly inactivated upon a few seconds exposure to atmospheric oxygen. Until recently, it was thought that hydrogenase is not active in air-grown microalgal cells. In contrast, we show that the entire pool(More)
