Definition of Early Transcriptional Circuitry Involved in Light-Induced Reversal of PIF-Imposed Repression of Photomorphogenesis in Young Arabidopsis Seedlings[W]
Light signals perceived by the phytochromes induce the transition from skotomorphogenic to photomorphogenic development (deetiolation) in dark-germinated seedlings. Evidence that a quadruple mutantExpand

Large-scale insertional mutagenesis of Chlamydomonas supports phylogenomic functional prediction of photosynthetic genes and analysis of classical acetate-requiring mutants.
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a unicellular green alga that is a key model organism in the study of photosynthesis and oxidative stress. Here we describe the large-scale generation of a population ofExpand

A Conserved Rubredoxin Is Necessary for Photosystem II Accumulation in Diverse Oxygenic Photoautotrophs*
Background: Photosystem II is an essential component of oxygenic photosynthesis. Results: Photosystem II is specifically decreased in rubredoxin mutants of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii,Expand

Genetic and Biochemical Studies of Photosystem II Assembly
Author(s): Calderon, Robert Harry | Advisor(s): Niyogi, Krishna | Abstract: Photosystem II (PSII) is the protein-pigment complex in oxygenic photosynthesis that uses light energy to catalyze theExpand

More than just a pair of blue genes: how cyanobacteria adapt to changes in their light environment
Cyanobacteria require light to perform photosynthesis, but not all colors of light are equally useable for them. In particular, blue light‐grown cyanobacterial strains, including the well‐studiedExpand
