Previously, we proposed a new method for production of RNA aptamers using the marine bacterium Rhodovulum sulfidophilum. A streptavidin RNA aptamer (an RNA which binds to streptavidin) was extracellularly produced by this bacterium containing engineered plasmid. The aptamer had full biological function. As a next step we attempted to produce another(More)
Rhodovulum sulfidophilum DSM 2351 is the nonsulfur photosynthetic bacterium that efficiently releases nucleic acids into the extracellular milieu, which leads to flocculation. In this study, we determined the complete genome sequence of R. sulfidophilum DSM 2351, which will provide new insights into the mechanism of its unique nucleic acid release.
Certain cyanobacteria can adjust the wavelengths of light they absorb by remodeling their photosynthetic antenna complex phycobilisome via a process called chromatic acclimation (CA). Although several types of CA have been reported, the diversity of the molecular mechanisms of CA among the cyanobacteria phylum is not fully understood. Here, we characterized(More)
