Cells of prokaryotes (including cyanobacteria) respond to a decrease in the environmental temperature by activation of multiple genes with a low-temperature response. A decrease in temperature causes a reduction of the cell membrane fluidity, which is maintained at an optimum level due to the activity of fatty acid (FA) desaturases. We studied a temperature-dependent expression of the desB gene for the ω3-desaturase in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis, which is able to synthesize… CONTINUE READING
