Modelling light-dark regime influence on the carbon-nitrogen metabolism in a unicellular diazotrophic cyanobacterium

Abstract

We propose a dynamical model depicting nitrogen (N2) fixation (diazotrophy) in a unicellular cyanobacterium, Crocosphaera watsonii, grown under light limitation and obligate diazotrophy. In this model, intracellular carbon and nitrogen are both divided into a functional pool and a storage pool. An internal pool that explicitly describes the nitrogenase… (More)
