The deduced amino acid sequence of an slr1923 gene of Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 is homologous to archaean F(420)H(2) dehydrogenase, which acts as a soluble subcomplex of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dehydrogenase complex I. In this study, the gene was inactivated and characteristics of the mutant were analyzed. The mutant grew slower than the wild type under 100 microE m(-2) s(-1) but did not grow under high light intensity (300 microE m(-2) s(-1)). The cellular content of… CONTINUE READING
