Two exopolyphosphatases with distinct molecular architectures and substrate specificities from the thermophilic green-sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidum TLS [Article]
(Microbiology Society, 2014)
The genome of the thermophilic green-sulfur bacterium Chlorobium tepidumTLS possesses two genes encoding putative exopolyphosphatases (PPX; EC 184.108.40.206), namely CT0099 (ppx1, 993 bp) and CT1713 (ppx2, 1557 bp). The predicted ...
The LysR-type transcription factor PacR is a global regulator of photosynthetic carbon assimilation in Anabaena [Article]
(Blackwell Publishing, 2015)
Cyanobacteria perform water-splitting photosynthesis and are important primary producers impacting the carbon and nitrogen cycles at global scale. They fix CO2 through ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCo) ...
The heterocyst differentiation transcriptional regulator HetR of the filamentous cyanobactrium Anabaena forms tetramers and can be regulated by phosphorylation [Article]
Many filamentous cyanobacteria respond to the external cue of nitrogen scarcity by the differentiation of heterocysts, cells specialized in the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen in oxic environments. Heterocysts follow a ...
