Oxygenic photosynthetic organisms use solar energy to split water (H2O) into protons (H+), electrons (e-), and oxygen. A select group of photosynthetic microorganisms, including the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, has evolved the additional ability to redirect the derived H+ and e- to drive hydrogen (H2) production via the chloroplast hydrogenases HydA1 and A2 (H2 ase). This process occurs under anaerobic conditions and provides a biological basis for solar-driven H2 production. However… Expand
Synthetic rewiring of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to improve biological H2 production

Photosynthetic H2 metabolism in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (unicellular green algae)
TLDR
Recent advances on green algal hydrogen metabolism are summarized and approaches discussed are beginning to address the biochemistry of anaerobic H2 photoproduction, its genes, proteins, regulation, and communication with other metabolic pathways in microalgae. Expand
Analytical approaches to photobiological hydrogen production in unicellular green algae

Hydrogen production by Chlamydomonas reinhardtii revisited: Rubisco as a biotechnological target
TLDR
The photosynthetic enzyme ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) appears as suitable objective for biotechnological optimization of hydrogen production because of its relevance controlling the hydrogenase main competitor electron sink (the Calvin-Benson cycle), as well as starch accumulation and photorespiratory oxygen consumption.

Sustained photobiological hydrogen gas production upon reversible inactivation of oxygen evolution in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
TLDR
The work describes a novel approach for sustained photobiological production of H(2) gas via the reversible hydrogenase pathway in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, and suggests that photoreduction of ferredoxin is followed by electron donation to theversible hydrogenase. Expand
Biochemical and morphological characterization of sulfur-deprived and H2-producing Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (green alga)
TLDR
It is suggested that, under S-deprivation conditions, electrons derived from a residual PSII H2O-oxidation activity feed into the hydrogenase pathway, thereby contributing to the H2-production process in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Expand
Effects of extracellular pH on the metabolic pathways in sulfur-deprived, H2-producing Chlamydomonas reinhardtii cultures.
TLDR
Carbon balances demonstrate that alternative metabolic pathways predominate at different pHs, and these depend on whether residual photosynthetic activity is present or not. Expand
The dependence of algal H2 production on Photosystem II and O2 consumption activities in sulfur-deprived Chlamydomonas reinhardtii cells.
TLDR
It is proposed that the induced hydrogenase activity provides a sink for electrons in the absence of other alternative pathways, and its operation allows the partial oxidation of intermediate photosynthetic carriers, including the PQ pool, between PSII and PSI. Expand
Sustained Photoevolution of Molecular Hydrogen in a Mutant of Synechocystis sp. Strain PCC 6803 Deficient in the Type I NADPH-Dehydrogenase Complex
TLDR
It was shown that two pathways of electron supply for H2 production operate in M55, namely photolysis of water at the level of photosystem II and carbohydrate-mediated reduction of the plastoquinone pool. Expand
Fluorescence and oxygen evolution from Chlorella pyrenoidosa.

The model proposes competitive dissipation of absorbed energy by photochemical trapping at reaction centers and by fluorescence and radiationless de-excitation from both the pigment bed and reaction centers of System 2. Expand
Expression of two [Fe]-hydrogenases in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii under anaerobic conditions.
TLDR
This work represents the first systematic study of expression of two algal [Fe]-hydrogenases in the same organism and shows that its catalytic site models well to the known structure of Clostridium pasteurianum CpI, including the H2-gas channel. Expand
Hydrogen Photoproduction Is Attenuated by Disruption of an Isoamylase Gene in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
TLDR
The results indicate that STA7 and starch metabolism play an important role in C. reinhardtii H2 photoproduction and that mere anaerobiosis is not sufficient to maintain hydrogenase gene expression without the underlying physiology, an important aspect of which is starch metabolism. Expand
