General Information

General Information Comment Organism
physiological function heterologous expression of subunits bchXYZ in Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 results in decrease in photosynthetic growth. An increase in cytosolic superoxide dismutase level in the recombinant Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 completely reversed the growth cessation, demonstraing that chlorophyllide a reductase generates superoxide in Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 Cereibacter sphaeroides
