Abstract. The temporal and spatial accumulation of cyanophycin was studied in two unicellular strains of cyanobacteria, the diazotrophic Cyanothece sp. strain ATCC 51142 and the non-diazotrophic Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803. Biochemistry and electron microscopy were used to monitor the dynamics of cyanophycin accumulation under nitrogen-sufficient and nitrogen-deficient conditions. In Cyanothece sp. ATCC 51142 grown under 12 h light/12 h dark nitrogen-fixing conditions, cyanophycin was… CONTINUE READING
