Hydrogen Production in Chlamydomonas: Photosystem II-Dependent and -Independent Pathways Differ in Their Requirement for Starch Metabolism1[W]
Under sulfur deprivation conditions, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii produces hydrogen in the light in a sustainable manner thanks to the contribution of two pathways, direct and indirect.Expand

Plastidial phosphorylase is required for normal starch synthesis in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
Among the three distinct starch phosphorylase activities detected in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, two distinct plastidial enzymes (PhoA and PhoB) are documented while a single extraplastidial formExpand

Digital imaging approaches for phenotyping whole plant nitrogen and phosphorus response in Brachypodium distachyon.
This work evaluates the phenotypic response of the model grass (Brachypodium distachyon (L.) P. Beauv.) to nitrogen and phosphorus nutrition using a combination of imaging techniques and destructiveExpand

Application of Brachypodium to the genetic improvement of wheat roots.
To meet the demands of a larger and more affluent global population, wheat yields must increase faster this century than last, with less irrigation, fertilizer, and land. Modelling and experimentsExpand

Hyper-accumulation of starch and oil in a Chlamydomonas mutant affected in a plant-specific DYRK kinase
BackgroundBecause of their high biomass productivity and their ability to accumulate high levels of energy-rich reserve compounds such as oils or starch, microalgae represent a promising feedstockExpand

Relationships between PSII-independent hydrogen bioproduction and starch metabolism as evidenced from isolation of starch catabolism mutants in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Sulfur deprivation, which is considered as an efficient way to trigger long-term hydrogen photoproduction in unicellular green algae has two major effects: a decrease in PSII which allowsExpand

The combination of gas-phase fluorophore technology and automation to enable high-throughput analysis of plant respiration
BackgroundMitochondrial respiration in the dark (Rdark) is a critical plant physiological process, and hence a reliable, efficient and high-throughput method of measuring variation in rates of RdarkExpand

Root type is not an important driver of mycorrhizal colonisation in Brachypodium distachyon
Abstract Breeding for favourable root traits in food and energy crops should be considered in the context of interactions with soil biota, notably those that can increase the nutrient use efficiencyExpand
