Cyanobacteria

Dmitry A. Los presents a new book on Cyanobacteria: Signaling and Regulation Systems
In this book Dr Los reviews the current research with experimental stressors and how these can be used to search for and to identify the regulatory molecules and circuits of cyanobacterial cells. Topics covered include: cyanobacterial genetic systems responsible for acclimation to changing environment, including the two-component regulatory system, eukaryotic-type serine-threonine protein kinases, sigma subunits of RNA polymerase, transcription factors, and some other regulators of gene expression in response to various factors. This book will be essential for anyone with an interest in cyanobacteria, stress responses, photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation and biotechnology read more ...
