In oxygenic photosynthetic organisms, the properties of photosynthetic reaction systems primarily depend on the Chl species used. Acquisition of new Chl species with unique optical properties may have enabled photosynthetic organisms to adapt to various light environments. The artificial production of a new Chl species in an existing photosynthetic organism by metabolic engineering provides a model system to investigate how an organism responds to a newly acquired pigment. In the current study… Expand
Artificially produced [7-formyl]-chlorophyll d functions as an antenna pigment in the photosystem II isolated from the chlorophyllide a oxygenase-expressing Acaryochloris marina.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that artificially produced [7-formyl]-Chl d molecules that are incorporated into PS II replace part of the Chld molecules and function as the antenna. Expand
Establishment of the forward genetic analysis of the chlorophyll d-dominated cyanobacterium Acaryochloris marina MBIC 11017 by applying in vivo transposon mutagenesis system
TLDR
Results indicate that the mutation of the moaA gene reduced nitrate reductase activity, which requires molybdenum cofactor cofactor, in the Y1 mutant, the first successful forward genetic analysis of A. marina, which will lead to the identification of genes responsible for adaptation to far-red light.

Artificially acquired chlorophyll b is highly acceptable to the thylakoid-lacking cyanobacterium, Gloeobacter violaceus PCC 7421.
TLDR
Results show that G. violaceus is tolerant to artificially produced Chl b and suggest the flexibility of photosystem for Chl composition in the ancestral oxygenic photosynthetic organism. Expand

TLDR
The present study succeeded in introducing an expression vector derived from a broad‐host‐range plasmid, RSF1010, into G. violaceus by conjugation, and the frequency of transformation of the system is significantly higher than that described in the previous report. Expand
Photosynthesis at the far-red region of the spectrum in Acaryochloris marina
TLDR
The photosystems of Acaryochloris marina, an oxygenic cyanobacterium that utilizes far-red light for photosynthesis, have an expanded genome, which helps in its adaptability to the environment, where it can survive on low energy photons. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that some derivations of the formyl side chain arrangement of the porphyrin ring from that of the Chl a macrocycle can extend the photosynthetic active radiation of these molecules, for example, Chl d and Chl f absorb light in the near-infrared region. Expand

TLDR
A far-red type of oxygenic photosynthesis was discovered in Acaryochloris marina, a recently found marine prokaryote that produces an atypical pigment chlorophyll d (Chl d) that might either be an acclimation to theFar-red light environments or an evolutionary intermediate between the red-absorbing oxygenic and the far- red absorbing anoxygenic photosynthesis that uses bacteriochlorophylls.
