Topics from this paper

Dynamic proteomic profiling of a unicellular cyanobacterium Cyanothece ATCC51142 across light-dark diurnal cycles
This study provides a deeper systems level insight into how Cyanothece ATCC51142 modulates cellular functions to accommodate photosynthesis and N2-fixation within the single cell. Expand
Effects of shear stress on microalgae - A review.
Cultivation of microalgae requires consideration of shear stress, which is generated by operations such as mixing, circulation, aeration and pumping that are designed to facilitate mass and heatExpand
Renewable energy from Cyanobacteria: energy production optimization by metabolic pathway engineering
The major important biochemical pathways in cyanobacteria are highlighted, and the possibility to influence these pathways to improve the production of specific types of energy forms the major part of this review. Expand
Molekulare Funktionsanalyse von Microcystin in Microcystis aeruginosa PCC 7806
Microcystins are the most common cyanobacterial toxins found in freshwater lakes and reservoirs throughout the world. They are frequently produced by the unicellular, colonial cyanobacteriumExpand
Cyanobacterial Taxonomy: Current Problems and Prospects for the Integration of Traditional and Molecular Approaches
From a scientific perspective the most challenging questions revolve around evolutionary strategies, the survival and diversification of cyanobacteria over the long period of their existence, and evaluation of their present diversity in nature. Expand
The effects of nitrogen limitation on the ultrastructure of the cyanobacterium Agmenellum quadruplicatum
The effects of nitrogen limitation on the ultrastructural changes resulting from nitrogen limitation were reversed upon addition of nitrate to a starved culture, and restoration was complete within 9 h. Expand
Temporal dynamics of ROS biogenesis under simulated solar radiation in the cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis PCC 7937
Findings from this study suggest that certain threshold levels of ROS are required to induce the fragmentation of filaments in cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis PCC 7937 and fragmentation of the filament was induced by all wavelengths of the UV-B region contrary to theUV-A region where only shorter wavelengths were able to induced the fragmentation.

A Δzwf (glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase) mutant of the cyanobacteriumSynechocystis sp. PCC 6803 exhibits unimpaired dark viability
The result of this study indicates that previously reported reduced dark viability in cyanobacterialzwf mutants may actually have been a result of impairedopcA transcription. Expand
