Cyanobacteria respond to nutrient-limiting conditions by degrading their phycobilisomes (PBS), the light-harvesting complexes for photosynthesis. In Synechococcus sp. PCC 7942, the expression of nblA, an essential gene in this process, is controlled by the response regulator NblR and the sensor NblS. Here we study the effect of inactivation of dspA (an nblS… CONTINUE READING
