Disease relevance of slr1737

  • To test this hypothesis, tocopherol-deficient mutants of Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803 (slr1736 and slr1737 mutants) were challenged with a series of reactive oxygen species-generating and lipid peroxidation-inducing chemicals in combination with high-light (HL) intensity stress [1].

High impact information on slr1737

  • Mutations in the VTE1, SXD1, or slr1737 genes resulted in both tocopherol deficiency and the accumulation of 2,3-dimethyl-6-phytyl-1,4-benzoquinone (DMPBQ), a TC substrate [2].
