The unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii acclimates to a low-CO2 environment by modifying the expression of a number of messages. Many of the genes that increase in abundance during acclimation to low−2 are under the control of the putative transcription factor Cia5. C. reinhardtii mutants null for cia5 do not express several of the known low−2 inducible genes and do not grow in a low−2 environment. Two of the genes under the control of Cia5, Ccp1 and Ccp2, encode polypeptides that… CONTINUE READING
