The filamentous cyanobacteria of the genus Nostoc are globally distributed, phenotypically complex organisms, capable of cellular differentiation and of forming symbiotic associations with a wide range of plants. To further our understanding of these processes and functions, the proteome of photoautotrophically and diazotrophically grown Nostoc sp. PCC(More)
Bacterial cell division is a highly co-ordinated and fine-tuned process. In the unicellular cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942, inactivating mutations in the ftn2 and ftn6 genes block cell division and result in a phenotype with extensively elongated cells. In order to establish the pleiotropic responses induced and cellular processes affected(More)
The first protein map was developed of Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942, a model organism for studies of photosynthesis, prokaryotic circadian rhythms, cell division, carbon-concentrating mechanisms, and adaptive responses to a variety of stresses. The proteome was analyzed by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis with subsequent MALDI-TOF mass spectroscopy(More)
The cellular and subcellular localization of FtsZ, a bacterial cell division protein, were investigated in vegetative cells of the filamentous cyanobacterium Nostoc/Anabaena sp. strain PCC 7120. We show by using immunogold-transmission electron microscopy that FtsZ forms a ring structure in a filamentous cyanobacterium, similar to observations in(More)
Molecular mechanisms behind adaptations in the cyanobacterium (Nostoc sp.) to a life in endosymbiosis with plants are still not clarified, nor are the interactions between the partners. To get further insights, the proteome of a Nostoc strain, freshly isolated from the symbiotic gland tissue of the angiosperm Gunnera manicata Linden, was analyzed and(More)
SUMMARY The unicellular cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC 7942 has been used as a model organism for studies of prokaryotic circadian rhythms, carbon-concentrating mechanisms, response to a variety of nutrient and environmental stresses, and cell division. This paper presents the results of the first proteomic exploratory study of Synechococcus PCC 7942. The(More)
