The Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle in Cyanobacteria
Contrary to expectations, many photosynthetic cyanobacteria maintain a metabolic flexibility that works in the dark. It is generally accepted that cyanobacteria have an incomplete tricarboxylic acidExpand

Extensive remodeling of a cyanobacterial photosynthetic apparatus in far-red light
Making sure leftover light gets in Bacteria that harvest sunlight through photosynthesis are everywhere and are vital for absorbing carbon dioxide. Like plants in a jungle, these cells have toExpand

Vipp1 Is Essential for the Biogenesis of Photosystem I but Not Thylakoid Membranes in Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002*
Background: Vipp1 was previously thought to be essential for viability and biogenesis of thylakoid membranes. Results: A vipp1 null mutant of cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 is viable andExpand

Effect of mono- and dichromatic light quality on growth rates and photosynthetic performance of Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002
Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 was grown to steady state in optically thin turbidostat cultures under conditions for which light quantity and quality was systematically varied by modulating the output ofExpand

Biochemical Validation of the Glyoxylate Cycle in the Cyanobacterium Chlorogloeopsis fritschii Strain PCC 9212*
Background: Conflicting claims exist concerning the occurrence of the glyoxylate cycle in cyanobacteria. Results: The genes for isocitrate lyase and malate synthase were identified in ChlorogleopsisExpand

Natural and Synthetic Variants of the Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle in Cyanobacteria: Introduction of the GABA Shunt into Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002
For nearly half a century, it was believed that cyanobacteria had an incomplete tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, because 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (2-OGDH) was missing. Recently, a bypass route viaExpand

Reprogramming the glycolytic pathway for increased hydrogen production in cyanobacteria: metabolic engineering of NAD+-dependent GAPDH
Catabolism of glycogen stored by cyanobacteria occurs during anaerobic auto-fermentation and produces a range of C1–C3 fermentation products and hydrogen via hydrogenase. We investigated bothExpand

Metabolic engineering of Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 to produce poly-3-hydroxybutyrate and poly-3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate.
Cyanobacteria are an important group of photoautotrophic bacteria that have been engineered and used to produce a wide range of biomaterials and biofuels, which are usually derived from importantExpand

Inactivation of nitrate reductase alters metabolic branching of carbohydrate fermentation in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7002
To produce cellular energy, cyanobacteria reduce nitrate as the preferred pathway over proton reduction (H2 evolution) by catabolizing glycogen under dark anaerobic conditions. This competitionExpand
