Prokaryotic cells, including cyanobacteria, respond to a decrease in ambient temperature by activation of numerous cold shock genes. Low temperatures cause a decrease in membrane fluidity, which is maintained at some optimal level mainly by fatty acid (FA) desaturases. Here, temperature-dependent expression of the desB gene for the omega3-desaturase in… CONTINUE READING
