The synthesis and accumulation of compatible solutes represent an essential part of the salt acclimation strategy of microorganisms. Glucosylglycerol is considered to be the typical compatible solute among marine cyanobacteria. However, genes that encode enzymes for the synthesis of glucosylglycerol were not detected in the genome sequences of marine picoplanktonic Prochlorococcus strains. Instead, we noticed the presence of genes that putatively encode for glucosylglycerate (GGA) synthesis… CONTINUE READING
