A Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7002 ΔpsaAB::cat mutant has been constructed by deletional interposon mutagenesis of the psaA and psaB genes through selection and segregation under low-light conditions. This strain can grow photoheterotrophically with glycerol as carbon source with a doubling time of 25 h at low light intensity (10 μE m−2 s−1). No Photosystem I (PS I)-associated chlorophyll fluorescence emission peak was detected in the ΔpsaAB::cat mutant. The chlorophyll content of the ΔpsaAB… CONTINUE READING
