Accumulation and stability of psbA and rbcL-S transcripts in Synechocystis 6803 was followed in the presence and absence of the photosynthesis inhibitors DCMU and methylviologen. Our results demonstrate that both transcript production and transcript stability are important regulatory elements for psbA gene expression in Synechocystis 6803. The production of psbA transcripts was stimulated by light in a process that operated independently of the photosynthetic electron transport. However… CONTINUE READING
