Pigment mutant strain FdR1 of the filamentous cyanobacterium Fremyella diplosiphon is characterized by constitutive synthesis of the phycobiliprotein phycoerythrin due to insertional inactivation of the rcaC regulatory gene by endogenous transposon Tn5469. Whereas the parental strain Fd33 harbors five genomic copies of Tn5469, cells of strain FdR1 harbor six genomic copies of the element; the sixth copy in FdR1 is localized to the rcaC gene. Electroporation of FdR1 cells yielded secondary… CONTINUE READING
