Iron starvation-induced proteomic changes in Anabaena (Nostoc) sp. PCC 7120: exploring survival strategy.

Interestingly, the up-regulated FBP-aldolase, Mn/Fe-SOD, and all1861 all appear to assist the survival of Anabeana subjected to iron-starvation conditions, and the N2-fixation capabilities of the iron- starved Anabaena encourage us to recommend its application as a biofertilizer, particularly in iron-limited paddy soils.

The iron‐stress activated RNA 1 (IsaR1) coordinates osmotic acclimation and iron starvation responses in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803

It is shown that IsaR1 overexpression causes a reduction in the de novo GG synthesis rate upon salt shock and specifically interferes with the salt acclimation process in Synechocystis, in addition to its primary regulatory function.

Physiological and spectroscopical changes of the thermophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus under iron stress and recovery culture

The iron in cyanobacterial cells contributes to energy conversion via electron transport chains, so its availability directly influences all metabolic pathways. Besides exploring cell adaptations and

Changes in the photosynthetic apparatus and lipid droplet formation in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii under iron deficiency

The genes/enzymes of Chlamydomonas that affect lipid synthesis through their influence on photosynthesis are highlighted, and these represent potential targets of metabolic engineering to develop strains for biofuel production.

Tapping into cyanobacteria electron transfer for higher exoelectrogenic activity by imposing iron limited growth

The present work proposes an iron related exoelectrogenic capacity of Synechococcus elongatus PCC7942 and sets a starting point for the study of this strain in order to improve photo-bioelectricity and dark-bIOelectricity generation by cyanobacteria, including more sustainable mediatorless systems.

Photophysiological and Photosynthetic Complex Changes during Iron Starvation in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 and Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942

Investigation of changes in key protein abundances and photophysiological parameters in the model cyanobacteria Synechococcus andSynechocystis over a 120 hour time course of iron deprivation found no evidence that the accumulated IsiA contributes to light capture by Photosystem II complexes.

The Presence of the IsiA-PSI Supercomplex Leads to Enhanced Photosystem I Electron Throughput in Iron-Starved Cells of Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002.

Findings indicate that the transient accumulation of electrons on A1 occurs more rapidly in the IsiA/PS I supercomplex than in the PS I complex alone, which translates directly to an enhanced rate of electron transfer through PS I.

Investigation of Pilin Function in the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803

Investigation of the involvement of a specific operon from Synechocystis sp.

Regulation and Functional Complexity of the Chlorophyll-Binding Protein IsiA

Progress in understanding the regulation and functions of IsiA is described based on laboratory research using model cyanobacteria, which shows that isiA forms a range of complexes that perform different functions.



Iron stress responses in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC7942.

The results show that after an initial step, where CP43' is induced and where ferredoxin is partly replaced by flavodoxin, the photosynthetic unit starts to undergo major rearrangements and growth ceases when the acclimation capacity is exhausted.

Morphological and Physiological Differences in Synechococcus elongatus during Continuous Cultivation at High Iron, Low Iron, and Iron Deficient Medium

In nutrient stress the photosynthetic apparatus preserved its activity despite the decrease in the amount of both Chl-binding complexes and thylakoid membranes, suggesting that S. elongatus responds to decrease in iron availability by substitution of the phycobilisomes by antennae containing chlorophyll (Chl) and carotenoids.

Genetic engineering of the unsaturation of fatty acids in membrane lipids alters the tolerance of Synechocystis to salt stress.

The role of unsaturated fatty acids in membrane lipids in the tolerance of the photosynthetic machinery to salt stress was studied and it appears that the activity and synthesis of the Na+/H+ antiporter system might be suppressed under high-salt conditions and that this effect can be reversed, in part, by the unsaturation of fatty acid in membranes lipids.

The action in vivo of glycine betaine in enhancement of tolerance of Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 to low temperature

It is suggested that glycine betaine enhances the tolerance of photosynthesis to low temperature and helps the cells to tolerate low temperature.

Expression of the isiA gene is essential for the survival of the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7942 by protecting photosystem II from excess light under iron limitation

It is suggested that CP43′ functions as a non‐radiative dissipator of light energy, thus protecting photosystem II from excessive excitation under iron‐deficient conditions.

Iron Deficiency in Cyanobacteria Causes Monomerization of Photosystem I Trimers and Reduces the Capacity for State Transitions and the Effective Absorption Cross Section of Photosystem I in Vivo1

It is demonstrated that the induction of CP43′ does not increase the PSI functional absorption cross section of whole cells in vivo, but rather, induces monomerization of PSI trimers and reduces the capacity for state transitions.

Adaptation of the photosynthetic electron transport chain in cyanobacteria to iron deficiency: The function of IdiA and IsiA.

The results suggest that IdiA protects the acceptor side of PSII against oxidative stress under conditions of mild iron limitation in a currently unclear way, whereas prolonged iron deficiency leads to the synthesis of a chlorophyll a antenna around PSI-trimers consisting of IsiA molecules.

The Highly Abundant Chlorophyll-Protein Complex of Iron-Deficient Synechococcus sp. PCC7942 (CP43[prime]) Is Encoded by the isiA Gene

Mild denaturing gel electrophoresis shows that mutant cells no longer express the CPVI-4 complex, indicating that the isiA gene encodes a component of this abundant Chl-protein complex.

CP43′, the isiA Gene Product, Functions as an Excitation Energy Dissipator in the Cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7942¶

The hypothesis that CP43′ functions as a nonradiative dissipator of light energy, thus protecting photosystem II from excessive excitation under iron-deficient conditions is strengthened, and isiAoe cells are suggested to have an increased capacity for dissipating light energy as heat.
