New Perspectives Related to the Bioluminescent System in Dinoflagellates: Pyrocystis lunula, a Case Study
TLDR
A review of the literature in relation to the molecular players responsible for bioluminescence in dinoflagellates, with particular interest in P. lunula, and a phylogenetic analysis of the conservation of protein sequence, structure and evolutionary pattern of these key players.
De novo transcriptome assembly data of the marine bioluminescent dinoflagellate Pyrocystis lunula
Rewiring the Metabolic Network to Increase Docosahexaenoic Acid Productivity in Crypthecodinium cohnii by Fermentation Supernatant-Based Adaptive Laboratory Evolution
TLDR
It is demonstrated that FS-ALE could be a valuable solution to relieve the inhibition of the fermentation supernatant at the late stage of normal fermentation of heterotrophic microalgae.
Development of the “Applied Proteomics” Concept for Biotechnology Applications in Microalgae: Example of the Proteome Data in Nannochloropsis gaditana
TLDR
This review considers current research in microalgae using the “omics” approach, which today is probably the most important biotechnology tool.
Bioluminescent System in Dinoflagellates
Dinoflagellates are the most important eukaryotic protists that produce light . This singularity has inspired not only literature and art, but also an intensive scientific dissection . Pyrocystis has
Diversity of dinoflagellate assemblages in coastal temperate and offshore tropical waters of Australia
TLDR
High-throughput sequencing and genotyping revealed greater diversity of dinoflagellate assemblages than previously known in both subtropical and temperate Australian waters.
Stress-Induced Dinoflagellate Bioluminescence at the Single Cell Level
TLDR
Control measurements of the relation between mechanical stress and light production at the single-cell level are reported, using high-speed imaging of micropipette-held cells of the marine dinoflagellate Pyrocystis lunula subjected to localized fluid flows or direct indentation, finding a viscoelastic response in which light intensity depends on both the amplitude and rate of deformation, consistent with the action of stretch-activated ion channels.
Bioluminescence and Photoreception in Unicellular Organisms: Light-Signalling in a Bio-Communication Perspective
TLDR
The hypothesis that similar to visual animals, the interplay between light-emission and reception could play multiple roles in intra- and interspecific communication and participate in complex behaviour in the unicellular world is proposed.
Data in Brief: Can a mega-journal for data be useful?
TLDR
The results show that Data in Brief became the largest data journal in 2016 and that its papers attracted over five Mendeley readers each, within a year of publication, as well as a non-trivial amount of citations.

Insights into a dinoflagellate genome through expressed sequence tag analysis
TLDR
This is the most extensive collection to date of ESTs from a toxic dinoflagellate and will be instrumental to future research to understand the unique and complex cell biology of these organisms and for potentially identifying the genes involved in toxin production.
Membrane Proteomic Insights into the Physiology and Taxonomy of an Oleaginous Green Microalga1
TLDR
RNA-Seq-based membrane proteomics provides insights into the biology of the oleaginous microalga Ettlia oleoabundans, allowing the identification of the novel proteins PSBS, MPH1, and RP2-CLC, and the reclassification of E. oleaabundan within the trebouxiophycean microalgae, rather than with the Chlorophyceae class, in which it is currently classified.
Preparation and Analysis of an Expressed Sequence Tag Library from the Toxic Dinoflagellate Alexandrium catenella
TLDR
A cDNA library from midexponential cells of A. catenella grown in culture free of associated bacteria is constructed and 10,850 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are sequenced that were assembled into 1,021 contigs and 5,475 singletons for a total of 6,496 unigenes.
Expressed Sequence Tag Analysis of the Dinoflagellate Lingulodinium polyedrum During Dark Phase¶
TLDR
Homology analysis of the total sequences indicated that the luminous dinoflagellate is more similar to land plants and animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) than to prokaryotes or algae.
Analysis of the genomic basis of functional diversity in dinoflagellates using a transcriptome‐based sequence similarity network
TLDR
The SSN approach led to identification of 45,207 and 90,794 specific and constitutive pCDs of the toxic and symbiotic species represented in the authors' analyses, which constitutes the most comprehensive picture to date of the genomic potential of dinoflagellates.
Comparative Genomic and Transcriptomic Characterization of the Toxigenic Marine Dinoflagellate Alexandrium ostenfeldii
TLDR
The genome of A. ostenfeldii is a typical dinoflagellate with respect to its transcriptome and mRNA transposition but demonstrates Alexandrium-like stop codon usage and the large portion of repetitive sequences and the organization within the genome is in agreement with several other studies on dinof lagellates using different approaches.
Dinoflagellate bioluminescence: A comparative study of invitro components
TLDR
In vitro bioluminescence components of the dinoflagellates Gonyaulax polyedra, G. tamarensis, Dissodinium lunula, and Pyrocystis noctiluca were studied and the observations that D. lunula and P. noCTiluca apparently lack LBP and have luciferases with low MW single chains require further clarification.
Spliced leader–based metatranscriptomic analyses lead to recognition of hidden genomic features in dinoflagellates
TLDR
The results suggest that a sophisticated eukaryotic molecular machine operates in dinoflagellates that likely encodes many more unsuspected physiological capabilities and demonstrate that unique spliced leaders are useful for profiling lineage-specific microbial transcriptomes in situ.
