Molecular mechanism of photo-regulation in cyanobacteria

Red-light perception and red-shifted chlorophylls: evolutionary consequences. The importance of red light is highlighted by the diversity of photoreceptors and the potential enhance more...

Cyanobaterial photoregulatory mechanisms, pigmentation varieties and their evolutionary significance

The red-shifted chlorophylls contain an extra formyl group compared to chlorophyll a in cyanobacteria. The oxygen atom in the formyl group requires oxygen molecules as one important more...

Evolutionary relationships of aerobic and anaerobic metabolic reactions

The generation of oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere by oxygenic photosynthesis was the most important environmental event to affect both biology and geology. Accumulation of mo more...

Turbulent transport of algae in stably stratified rivers: a computational fluid dynamics study

In stably stratified shear flows, turbulent mixing is suppressed by the background stratification. In rivers, these conditions allow buoyant cyanobacteria to float to the surface an more...

Spectral extension in photosynthesis: molecular mechanism of photosynthesis driven by red-shifted chlorophylls

Novel pigments and new directions in photosynthesis: past, now and future. There are five different forms of chlorophylls, Chl a, Chl b, Chl c, Chl d and Chl f. Chlorophyll a i more...
