Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) are photosynthesizing organisms that can be used as a model for analyzing light-responsive gene expression. The regulatory system of the light-responsive psbA gene with cis-elements and trans-acting factors was studied at both transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. Positive regulation comprises DNA curvatures (CIT and RIB), upstream elements (UPE and promoter), and a light-induced sigma factor (SigD) of RNA polymerase in transcription. On the other… CONTINUE READING
