In the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, photosynthetic electron transport from the cytochrome bf complex to photosystem I can be mediated by cytochrome c553 or plastocyanin. The concentration of copper in the growth medium determines which protein is synthesized. To investigate the role of cytochrome c553 in photosynthetic and respiratory electron transport, we cloned the petJ gene encoding cytochrome c553 from Synechocystis 6803 and determined its nucleotide sequence. The 360-base… CONTINUE READING
