The unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has been identified as a promising organism for the production of recombinant proteins. While during the last years important improvements have been developed for the production of proteins within the chloroplast, the expression levels of transgenes from the nuclear genome were too low to be of(More)
For the model organism Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a codon-adapted gene variant of the extracellular luciferase of Gaussia princeps was generated as a sensitive molecular tool to study gene expression from the nuclear genome. In the past, monitoring promoter activity in Chlamydomonas employing the commonly used luciferase encoded by Renilla reniformis was(More)
Whole cells of the purple sulfur bacterium strain 970 exhibit an unusual absorption peak at 963 nm. Its closest relatives, Thiorhodovibrio (Trv.) winogradskyi DSM6702T and strain 06511 display a bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) a absorption peak at 867 nm that is characteristic for most light-harvesting complexes 1 (LHC1) of proteobacteria. The puf operons(More)
