The ancestors of modern cyanobacteria invented O(2)-generating photosynthesis some 3.6 billion years ago. The conversion of water and CO(2) into energy-rich sugars and O(2) slowly transformed the planet, eventually creating the biosphere as we know it today. Eukaryotes didn't invent photosynthesis; they co-opted it from prokaryotes by engulfing and stably integrating a photoautotrophic prokaryote in a process known as primary endosymbiosis. After approximately a billion of years of coevolution… Expand
Evolving a photosynthetic organelle
TLDR
The enigmatic amoeba Paulinella and its 'recently' acquired photosynthetic inclusions provide a fascinating system through which to gain fresh insight into how endosymbionts become organelles, and the question is how it can help to understand the process by which an endosYmbiont is converted into an organelle.

Future Perspectives in Plant Biology From Endosymbiosis to Synthetic Photosynthetic Life 1
The chloroplasts of photosynthetic eukaryotes arose more than 1.6 billion years ago (Yoon et al., 2004) through the process of primary endosymbiosis, in which a cyanobacterium became permanentlyExpand
Genomic Insights into Plastid Evolution
TLDR
An overview of recent advances in understanding of the origin and spread of plastids from the perspective of comparative genomics is provided. Expand
Diversity and Evolution of Algae: Primary Endosymbiosis
TLDR
An update of the current understanding of the primary endosymbiotic event that gave rise to the Archaeplastida is given and an overview of the diversity in the Rhodophyta, Glaucophyta and the Viridiplantae is provided to highlight how genomic data are enabling us to understand the relationships and characteristics of algae emerging from this primary endOSymbiosis event.

Gene transfers from diverse bacteria compensate for reductive genome evolution in the chromatophore of Paulinella chromatophora
TLDR
A dominant role for HGT in compensating for organelle genome reduction is demonstrated and it is suggested that phagotrophy may be a major driver of HGT. Expand
Chloroplast-mitochondria cross-talk in diatoms.
TLDR
This review will discuss the evidence for such an unusual assemblage of organelles in diatoms, and will present the evidence implying that it has enabled them with unorthodox metabolisms that may have contributed to their profound ecological success. Expand

Endosymbiosis led to cellular mergers in which at least the host cell acquired additional merits, and allowed new ecological niches to be settled successfully. For example, a major part of eukaryotesExpand
A tertiary plastid uses genes from two endosymbionts.
TLDR
All plastid-targeted proteins are identified, the phylogenetic origin of each protein is analysed, and the transit peptides in K.micrum are different from those found in either dinoflagellates or haptophytes, pointing to a plastsid with an evolutionarily chimeric proteome, and a massive remodelling of protein trafficking during plastids replacement.

Cyanobacterial Contribution to Algal Nuclear Genomes Is Primarily Limited to Plastid Functions
TLDR
Whether the level of cyanobacterial gene recruitment proposed for Arabidopsis is of the same magnitude in the algal sisters of plants is determined by analyzing expressed-sequence tag (EST) data from the glaucophyte alga Cyanophora paradoxa. Expand
Monophyly of Primary Photosynthetic Eukaryotes: Green Plants, Red Algae, and Glaucophytes
TLDR
These analyses provide the first strong support for a single endosymbiotic event that gave rise to primary photosynthetic eukaryotes, the Plantae, which are present in green plants, red algae, and glaucophytes. Expand
A Cyanobacterial Gene in Nonphotosynthetic Protists—An Early Chloroplast Acquisition in Eukaryotes?
TLDR
The data suggest that chloroplasts were introduced into eukaryotes much earlier than previously thought and that several major groups of heterotrophic eUKaryotes have secondarily lost photosynthetic plastids. Expand

TLDR
The history of the plastid and of its various hosts is reviewed with particular attention to the number and nature of the endosymbiotic events that led to the current distribution of plastids. Expand
Plastid genes in a non-photosynthetic dinoflagellate.
TLDR
Genetic data indicate that Crypthecodinium cohnii is derived from a photosynthetic ancestor and provide a model for loss of photosynthesis in dinoflagellates and their relatives, the first extensive genomic analysis of a heterotrophic dinof lagellate. Expand
Gene Replacement of Fructose-1,6-Bisphosphate Aldolase Supports the Hypothesis of a Single Photosynthetic Ancestor of Chromalveolates
TLDR
A novel molecular character is described that supports the chromalveolate hypothesis, and it is shown that plastid-targeted FBA of heterokonts, cryptomonads, haptophytes, and dinoflagellates (all photosynthetic Chromalveolates) are class II plastsid- targeted enzymes, completely unlike those of red algal plastids.

Complete nucleotide sequence of the chlorarachniophyte nucleomorph: nature's smallest nucleus.
TLDR
Although originating by two independent endosymbioses, chlorarachniophyte and cryptomonad nucleomorph genomes have converged upon remarkably similar architectures but differ in many molecular details that reflect two distinct trajectories to hypercompaction and reduction. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the periplastid membrane (PPM, the former algal plasma membrane) of chromalveolates, and possibly chlorarachneans, grows by fusion of vesicles emanating from the NM envelope or PPR, which is a potentially novel target for drugs against alveolate Sporozoa such as malaria parasites and Toxoplasma.
