Proteogenomics of a Chernobyl's Microbacterium sp. A9 bacterial isolate
ABSTRACT: This project is a proteomic comparison of Microbacterium sp. A9 exposed to 10 µM nitrate uranyl versus control condition without uranyl. Three sampling time points (30 min, 4h and 24h)are analyzed.
Project description:Unicellular cyanobacteria that do not fix nitrogen can survive prolonged periods of nitrogen starvation as bleached cells in a non-growing, dormant state. Upon re-addition of a usable nitrogen source, bleached cultures re-green within 48 hours and the cells return to vegetative growth. Here we investigated the process of resuscitation at the physiological and molecular level. Almost immediately upon nitrate addition, the cells initiate an amazingly organized resuscitation program: they first turn on respiration, gaining energy and activating the genes of the entire translational apparatus, genes for ATP synthesis and nitrate assimilation. Only after about 12 hours, the cells rebuild the photosynthetic apparatus and switch on photosynthesis. Analysis of the transcriptome in recovering cells shows a perfect match to the physiological processes and reveals a paramount dynamics of non-coding RNAs in awaking cells. This genetically encoded program ensures rapid colonization of habitats, in which nitrogen starvation imposes a recurring growth limitation. Synechocstis PCC 6803 WT cells were subjected to nitrogen limitation for 14d, then nitrogen was re-added to monitor recovery of the cells. Samples were taken before nitrogen depletion, after 14d of nitrogen depletion and 4h, 13h, 24h and 48h after nitrogen re-addition. Samples were taken in biological replicates for all timepoints besides 48h nitrogen recovery.
Project description:ra05-12_nar2 - atnar2.1-1 - Does the ko of AtNAR2.1 leads to a differential expression in comparison to the WT when grown under high nitrate condition and transfered onto low nitrate concentration? - Plants were grown for 41 days in hydroponics in media containing 6 mM nitrate and then transferred to 6 or 0.2 mM nitrate media for 24h ( short days, irradiation 150 uE). Plants were harvested on day 42 during the first 2 hours of light. Keywords: dose response,gene knock out Overall design: 8 dye-swap - CATMA arrays
Project description:Functional analysis of engineered carbon limitation in the ∆ndhD3/ndhD4/cmpA/sbtA (= ∆4) Synechocystis mutant reveals a global phenocopy of wild type acclimation to low CO2 and multi-layered Ci-regulation. Overall design: We analyzed gene expression in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 WT as well as a ∆ndhD3/ndhD4/cmpA/sbtA mutant (= ∆4) at HC (5% CO2) as well as 3h and 24h after shift to LC (air). For each strain and each sampling point, 2 biological replicates were analyzed.
