Phage auxiliary metabolic genes and the redirection of cyanobacterial host carbon metabolism.
Cyanophages infecting the marine cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus encode and express genes for the photosynthetic light reactions. Sequenced cyanophage genomes lack Calvin cycle genes,Expand

A Free-Standing Homing Endonuclease Targets an Intron Insertion Site in the psbA Gene of Cyanophages
Homing endonuclease genes are mobile elements that promote their duplication into cognate sites that lack the endonuclease gene [1, 2]. The homing endonuclease initiates this event throughExpand

Marine Viruses Exploit Their Host's Two-Component Regulatory System in Response to Resource Limitation
Phosphorus (P) availability, which often limits productivity in marine ecosystems, shapes the P-acquisition gene content of the marine cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus [1-4] and its virusesExpand

Picocyanobacteria and deep-ocean fluorescent dissolved organic matter share similar optical properties
Marine chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) and its related fluorescent components (FDOM), which are widely distributed but highly photobleached in the surface ocean, are critical inExpand

Transcriptomic response during phage infection of a marine cyanobacterium under phosphorus-limited conditions.
The transcriptomic responses of bacteria to environmental stresses have been studied extensively, yet we know little about how the stressed cells respond to bacteriophage infection. Here, weExpand

Isolating high-quality RNA from mangroves without liquid nitrogen
Mangroves form unique communities in tropical coastal regions and tidal lowlands. Isolating RNA from mangrove leaves is difficult because of high amounts of secondary metabolites and polysaccharides.Expand

Cyanobacterial viruses exhibit diurnal rhythms during infection
Significance To adapt to the daily light–dark cycle, diurnal rhythms are used by the photosynthetic cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus, which are the most abundant photosyntheticExpand

Gene Expression Patterns during Light and Dark Infection of Prochlorococcus by Cyanophage
Cyanophage infecting the marine cyanobacteria Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus require light and host photosystem activity for optimal reproduction. Many cyanophages encode multiple photosyntheticExpand

Tunable pores for measuring concentrations of synthetic and biological nanoparticle dispersions.
Scanning ion occlusion sensing (SIOS), a technique that uses a tunable pore to detect the passage of individual nano-scale objects, is applied here for the rapid, accurate and direct measurement ofExpand
