Eighty mutants of Synechocystis PCC6803 that require high CO(2) for growth were examined with a mass spectrometer for their ability to take up CO(2) in the light. Two of these mutants (type A) did not show any CO(2) uptake while the rest of the mutants (type B) took up CO(2) actively. Type A mutants (RKa and RKb) and one type B mutant (RK11) were partially characterized. At 3% CO(2), growth rates of the mutants and the wild type (WT) were similar. Under air levels of CO(2), growth of RKa and… CONTINUE READING
