Chlamydomonas reinhardtii adapts to the stress of CO(2)-limiting conditions through the induction of a set of genes including CAH1, which encodes a periplasmic carbonic anhydrase. CAH1 is up-regulated under low-CO(2) conditions (air containing 0.04% [v/v] CO(2)) in the presence of light, whereas it is down-regulated under high-CO(2) conditions (5% [v/v] CO(2)) or in the dark. In an effort to identify cis-elements involved in the transcriptional regulation of CAH1, a series of 5'-nested… CONTINUE READING
