Water, which contained [1,3-3H]glycerol, [35S]sodium sulfate, or [32P]sodium orthophosphate, was used to rehydrate air-dried cells of the desiccation-tolerant filamentous cyanobacterium Nostoc commune. The cells retained their capacities for the uptake and transport of all three compounds and, in response to rewetting, they mobilized the radiolabels into lipid precursors and initiated complex lipid biosynthesis. The onset of these events, measured in short-term, long-term and pulse-chase… CONTINUE READING
