  • Abstract Sulfate nutrient-deprivation in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii brings about prompt degradation of Rubisco and a concomitant substantial accumulation of starch. These changes precede hydrogen ( H 2 ) photoevolution by the cells. The cause-and-effect relationship between Rubisco loss, starch accumulation and subsequent H 2 -photoevolution in C. reinhardtii, and the role of illumination for these changes to occur, was investigated in this work. A Rubisco-less and acetate-requiring mutant of C… CONTINUE READING
