Comparative analysis of idiA and isiA transcription under iron starvation and oxidative stress in Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 wild-type and selected mutants


In the mesophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942, iron starvation induces the expression of a number of proteins, including IdiA and IsiA. Whereas IdiA protects photosystem (PS) II under mild iron limitation against oxidative stress in a yet unknown way, prolonged iron starvation leads to the formation of the PS I–IsiA supercomplex… (More)
