Glutathione Metabolism in Synechococcus sp. PCC6301

This image is a scaled-down version of the actual pathway image. It does not contain any links to the protein information pages.


Marine unicellular Cyanobacteria of the Synechococcus group occupy an important position at the base of the marine food web. They are abundant in the world s oceans and as a result are major primary producers on a global scale and one of the most numerous genomes on earth. They have the ability to acquire major nutrients and trace metals at the submicromolar concentrations found in the oligotrophic open seas, and their light-harvesting apparatus is uniquely adapted to the spectral quality of light in the ocean (Ref.1). Glutathione metabolism in Synechococcus sp. involves both the synthesis of Glutathione and its catabolism. Glutathione is a small molecule found in almost every cell. It cannot enter most cells directly and therefore must be made [...]
