Cyanobacteria perform oxygenic photosynthesis, which makes them unique among the prokaryotes, and this feature together with their abundance and worldwide distribution renders them a central ecological role. Cyanobacteria and chloroplasts of plants and algae are believed to share a common ancestor and the modern chloroplast would thus be the remnant of an endosymbiosis between a eukaryotic cell and an ancestral oxygenic photosynthetic prokaryote. Chloroplast metabolic processes are coordinated… CONTINUE READING
