Nitrogen nutrition in algae: unraveling pieces of the nitrogen assimilation puzzle and its regulation in the model alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
(Universidad de Córdoba, UCOPress, 2018)
Las algas, formando parte de la base de la cadena trófica de ecosistemas marinos y de agua dulce, son clave para la vida acuática. Estos organismos fotosintéticos, sometidos a fluctuaciones constantes de disponibilidad ...
Low oxygen levels contribute to improve photohydrogen production in mixotrophic non‑stressed Chlamydomonas cultures
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: Currently, hydrogen fuel is derived mainly from fossil fuels, but there is an increasing interest in clean and sustainable technologies for hydrogen production. In this context, the ability of some photosynthetic ...
Characterization of a Mutant Deficient for Ammonium and Nitric Oxide Signalling in the Model System Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
The ubiquitous signalling molecule Nitric Oxide (NO) is characterized not only by the variety of organisms in which it has been described, but also by the wealth of biological processes that it regulates. In contrast to ...
Algae-Bacteria Consortia as a Strategy to Enhance H2 Production
Biological hydrogen production by microalgae is a potential sustainable, renewable and clean source of energy. However, many barriers limiting photohydrogen production in these microorganisms remain unsolved. In order to ...
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, an Algal Model in the Nitrogen Cycle
Nitrogen (N) is an essential constituent of all living organisms and the main limiting macronutrient. Even when dinitrogen gas is the most abundant form of N, it can only be used by fixing bacteria but is inaccessible to ...
