The Chlamydomonas Genome Reveals the Evolution of Key Animal and Plant Functions
Analyses of the Chlamydomonas genome advance the understanding of the ancestral eukaryotic cell, reveal previously unknown genes associated with photosynthetic and flagellar functions, and establish links between ciliopathy and the composition and function of flagella.

Using knockdown Phaeodactylum tricornutum transgenic lines, the key function of a member of the light-harvesting complex stress-related (LHCSR) protein family is revealed, denoted LHCX1, in modulation of excess light energy dissipation in diatoms.

The NDA2 gene, belonging to a type II NAD(P)H dehydrogenases family in the green microalga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, encodes a chloroplastic dehydrogenase that functions to reduce PQ nonphotochemically in this alga.
Energetic coupling between plastids and mitochondria drives CO2 assimilation in diatoms
It is shown that diatoms regulate ATP/NADPH through extensive energetic exchanges between plastids and mitochondria, and this interaction comprises the re-routing of reducing power generated in the plastid towards mitochondria and the import of mitochondrial ATP into thePlastid, and is mandatory for optimized carbon fixation and growth.

A Dual Strategy to Cope with High Light in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii[W]
It is suggested that besides qE, state transitions also play a photoprotective role during high light acclimation of the cells, most likely by decreasing hydrogen peroxide production.

Electrochromism: a useful probe to study algal photosynthesis
In photosynthesis, electron transfer along the photosynthetic chain results in a vectorial transfer of protons from the stroma to the lumenal space of the thylakoids. This promotes the generation of…
Structural organization of mitochondrial human complex I: role of the ND4 and ND5 mitochondria-encoded subunits and interaction with prohibitin.
This is the first description of prohibitin interaction with complex I subunits and suggests that this protein might play a role in the assembly or degradation of mitochondrial complex I.

The present results demonstrate that in C. reinhardtii mutants, permanent defects in the mitochondrial electron transport chain stabilize state 2, which favors cyclic over linear electron transport in the chloroplast.
