The cbr gene, previously cloned from the unicellular green alga Dunaliella bardawil, is transcriptionally and translationally activated in parallel to accelerated carotenogenesis in response to light stress conditions. The product of cbr, structurally similar to Elips (early light-induced proteins of higher plants), is associated with a minor light harvesting complexes of photosystem II component (Levy, H., Gokhman, I., and Zamir, A. (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267, 18831-18836). This study examines… CONTINUE READING
