Bioinformatic analysis of the genomes of the cyanobacteria Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 and Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 for the presence of peroxiredoxins and their transcript regulation under stress.

Abstract

The genomes of the cyanobacteria Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 and Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 encode five and six open reading frames (ORFs), respectively, with similarity to peroxide-detoxifying peroxiredoxins (Prx). In addition to one highly conserved gene each for 2-Cys Prx and 1-Cys Prx, the Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 genome contains one TypeII Prx… (More)
