    Photosystem II (PSII) contains different extrinsic proteins required for oxygen evolution among different organisms. Cyanobacterial PSII contains the 33 kDa, 12 kDa proteins and cytochrome (cyt) c-550; red algal PSII contains a 20 kDa protein in addition to the three homologous cyanobacterial...

    The oxygen-evolving machinery of photosystem II in cyanobacteria is associated with three extrinsic proteins: the manganese-stabilizing protein, cytochrome c550, and PsbU. To elucidate the effect of the presence of these extrinsic proteins on the stabilization of the oxygen-evolving machinery...

    Cyanobacterial N2-fixation supplies the vast majority of biologically accessible inorganic nitrogen to nutrient-poor aquatic ecosystems. The process, catalyzed by the heterodimeric protein complex, nitrogenase, is thought to predate that of oxygenic photosynthesis. Remarkably, while the enzyme...

    A sensitive system has been developed to measure the evolution rate of the photosynthetic oxygen produced by cyanobacteria. The system was built around a Clark oxygen probe. The circuit diagram of the polarizing voltage unit and amplifier, methods for calibration, and the flow chart of the...

    Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a severe psychiatric disorder associated with food avoidance and malnutrition. In this study, we wanted to test whether we would find brain reward alterations in AN, compared with individuals with normal or increased body weight. We studied 21 underweight,...

    Abstract  We have designed a multispectral imaging acquisition system to measure the relative concentration values of myoglobin forms inside meat during oxygenation. Images at 474, 525, 572 and 610 nm are used to compute the concentration of reduced myoglobin, oxymyoglobin and...

    The use of microfluidic systems for screening of aptamers and their biomedical applications are reviewed in this paper. Aptamers with different nucleic acid sequences have been extensively studied and the results demonstrated a strong binding affinity to target molecules such that they can be...

    The earliest relatives of plants have been around for about 3.5 billion of the 4.5 billion years of Earth's existence. The first known group of organisms which produced their own food from light are known as Cyanobacteria. The next kind of organisms in the evolutionary line of plants are various...

  • Deposition of banded iron formations by anoxygenic phototrophic Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria. Kappler, Andreas; Pasquero, Claudia; Konhauser, Kurt O.; Newman, Dianne K. // Geology;Nov2005, Vol. 33 Issue 11, p865 

    The mechanism of banded iron formation (BIF) deposition is controversial, but classically has been interpreted to reflect ferrous iron [Fe(II)] oxidation by molecular oxygen after cyanobacteria evolved on Earth. Anoxygenic photoautotrophic bacteria can also catalyze Fe(II) oxidation under anoxic...
