- An endophytic diatom, Pseudogomphonema sp. (Naviculaceae, Bacillariophyceae), lives inside the red alga Neoabbottiella (Halymeniaceae, Rhodophyta). KLOCHKOVA, TATYANA A.; PISAREVA, NINA A.; JOON SANG PARK; JIN HWAN LEE; JONG WON HAN; KLOCHKOVA, NINA G.; GWANG HOON KING // Phycologia;May2014, Vol. 53 Issue 3, p205
Benthic diatoms are the most common epiphytes on the surfaces of marine organisms. Although some epiphytic diatoms cause multimillion-dollar economic losses in commercially cultivated red algal plantations every year, such as Pyropia (formerly Porphyra), little is known about endophytic or...
- Taxonomic distribution and origins of the extended LHC (light-harvesting complex) antenna protein superfamily. Engelken, Johannes; Brinkmann, Henner; Adamska, Iwona // BMC Evolutionary Biology;2010, Vol. 10, p233
Background: The extended light-harvesting complex (LHC) protein superfamily is a centerpiece of eukaryotic photosynthesis, comprising the LHC family and several families involved in photoprotection, like the LHC-like and the photosystem II subunit S (PSBS). The evolution of this complex...
