Disease relevance of chlL

  • Light-dependent chlorophyll a biosynthesis upon chlL deletion in wild-type and photosystem I-less strains of the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 [1].

High impact information on chlL

  • Moreover, when grown in darkness for 14 days, upon the addition of delta-aminolevulinic acid, the level of magnesium-protoporphyrin IX increased 60-fold in the PS I-less/chlL(-)/lhcb(+)/cao(+) strain (only approximately 2-fold in the PS I-less/chlL(-) control strain), whereas the PChlide and protoheme levels remained fairly constant [2].
  • The effects of glycerol and high temperatures on structure and function of phycobilisomes (PBSs) in vivo were investigated in a chlL deletion mutant of the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 [3].
  • When cells of a strain lacking PS I and chlL (coding for a polypeptide needed for light-independent protochlorophyllide reduction) were grown in darkness, the phycobilin and protochlorophyllide levels decreased upon deletion of scpB or scpE and the protoheme level was reduced in the strain lacking scpE [4].
  • Chlorophyll synthesis genes, chlH and chlL in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, were replaced by a kanamycin-resistance marker through double recombinations with flanking homology regions [5].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of chlL

  • PCR analysis confirmed that the chlL- -pseudorevertant mutant still lacked the chlL gene [6].
