Glutathione Metabolism in Synechococcus sp. WH8102

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 Synechococcus is the main source of primary productin in oligotrophic, pelagic waters. Many genera of Cyanobacteria thrive in nutrient-rich, eutrophic environments, and are, as such considered indicators of eutrophication, which currently troubles many aquatic ecosystems. Synechococcus sp. strain WH8102 is a motile strain that can be grown in both natural and artificial seawater liquid media as well as on plates and is amenable to biochemical and genetic manipulation. It dwells in the most [...]
