The cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 carries out oxygenic photosynthesis analogous to higher plants. Its photosystem I contains seven different polypeptide subunits. The cartridge mutagenesis technique was used to inactivate the psaD gene which encodes subunit II of photosystem I. A mutant strain lacking subunit II was generated by transforming wild type cells with cloned DNA in which psaD gene was interrupted by a gene conferring kanamycin resistance. The photoautotrophic growth of… CONTINUE READING
