5/5(1). Cyanobacteria, the first oxygen-evolving group of photosynthetic Gram-negative prokaryotes, are unique among microbial world and grow in diverse habitats. Cyanobacteria synthesize a vast array of novel secondary metabolites including biologically active compounds with antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anticancer activities.

Other topics include circadian rhythms, genetics and molecular biology of abiotic stress responses, application of cyanobacteria and cyanobacterial mats in wastewater treatments, use as a source of novel stress-responsive genes for development of stress tolerance and as a source of biofuels, industrial application, as biofertilizer.

Leading senior scientists and young researchers review the current key topics in cyanobacterial cell biology to provide a timely covered include: historical background; cell division; the cell envelope; the thylakoid membrane; protein targeting, transport and translocation; chromatic acclimation; the carboxysome; glycogen as a dynamic storage of photosynthetically.

Covering almost every aspect of cyanobacterial stress biology, this book is divided into two parts: Bioenergetics and Molecular Mechanisms of Stress Tolerance and Cellular Responses and Ecophysiology.

The first few chapters focus on the molecular bioenergetics of photosynthesis and respiration in cyanobacteria, and provide a clear perspective. The Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria. The molecular model of the PBS-PSII-OCP super-complex was used to assess the rate of energy transfer from Author: Walter Sidler.

Cyanobacteria thrive in every illuminated aquatic environment known, contributing at least 25% of primary productivity worldwide. Given their importance in carbon and nutrient cycles, cyanobacteria are essential geochemical agents that have shaped the composition of the Earth's crust, oceans and atmosphere for billions of by: Cyanobacteria / s aɪ ˌ æ n oʊ b æ k ˈ t ɪər i ə /, also known as Cyanophyta, are a phylum consisting of free-living photosynthetic bacteria and the endosymbiotic plastids, a sister group to Gloeomargarita, that are present in some commonly obtain their energy through oxygenic photosynthesis.

The oxygen gas in the atmosphere of earth is produced by (unranked): Terrabacteria. Advances in Cyanobacterial Biology presents the novel, practical, and theoretical aspects of cyanobacteria, providing a better understanding of basic and advanced biotechnological application in the field of sustainable agriculture.

Chapters have been designed to deal with the different aspects of cyanobacteria including their role in the evolution of life, cyanobacterial. Molecular signatures in protein sequences that are characteristic of cyanobacteria and plastid homologues. International Journal of Systematic and.

(CH 2 O) n + nO 2], they also liberate into the atmosphere the oxygen required for oxidative we see in this section, it is thought that the evolution of cyanobacteria from more primitive photosynthetic bacteria eventually made possible the development of abundant aerobic life forms.

In plants and algae, which developed much later, photosynthesis occurs in Cited by: 1. It would be desirable to have it in libraries or in the book stock of laboratories working in the field of molecular biology and/or photosynthesis or plant phsyiology. ' Journal of Plant Physiology, () ` the volume is an excellent summary of information on blue-green algae, their photosynthetic metabolism and its genetic Edition:   Cyanobacteria make a major contribution to world photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation, but are also notorious for causing nuisances such as dense and often toxic `blooms' in lakes and the ocean.

The Ecology of Cyanobacteria: Their Diversity in Time and Space is the first book to focus solely on ecological aspects of these organisms.

Its twenty-two chapters are 5/5(1). Stress Biology of Cyanobacteria: Molecular Mechanisms to Cellular Responses is a compilation of holistic responses of cyanobacteria, ranging from ecological and physiological to the modern aspects of their molecular biology, genomics, and biochemistry.

This chapter provides a selective overview of present knowledge of cyanobacterial morphological forms and their development. Due to the paucity of physiological variation among cyanobacteria, their classification has relied heavily on their morphological complexity.

Recent work has revealed the cyanobacterial cell wall to be more complex than once by: Cyanobacteria are a fascinating and versatile group of bacteria of immense biological importance.

KLUWER ACADEMIC PUBLISHERS DORDRECHT / BOSTON / LONDON. Cyanobacteria, which are autotrophic, serve as important fixers of nitrogen in food chains.

In addition, cyanobacteria, a key component of the plankton found in the oceans and seas, produce a major share of the oxygen present in the atmosphere, while also serving as food for fish.

Some species of cyanobacteria coexist with fungi to form lichens. Journal of Molecular Biology (JMB) provides high quality, comprehensive and broad coverage in all areas of molecular journal publishes original scientific research papers that provide mechanistic and functional insights and report a significant advance to the field.

The journal encourages the submission of multidisciplinary studies that use complementary experimental. Dear Colleagues, Filamentous, heterocyst-forming cyanobacteria constitute a genuine example of bacterial multicellularity.

During cell division, the resulting daughter cells do not separate as in unicellular bacteria, but they remain bound by an unsplit outer membrane, which determines the presence of a continuous shared periplasm, and by proteinaceous structures—Septal.

Cyanobacteria and eukaryotic microalgae are phototrophic microorganisms capable of producing organic compounds using solar energy. Owing to their fast growth, low cost cultivation, and the diversity of high-value chemical substances produced, they are considered an attractive target to be exploited by the biotechnology industry.

While genetic modulation of these organisms has Cited by: 3. The Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria summarizes more than a decade of progress in analyzing the taxonomy, biochemistry, physiology, cellular differentiation and developmental biology of cyanobacteria by modern molecular methods, especially molecular genetics.

During this period cyanobacterial molecular biologists have been `studying those things that cyanobacteria do. Cyanobacteria are a fascinating and versatile group of bacteria of immense biological importance. Thought to be ancient colonisers of the earth, these bacteria are the photosynthetic ancestors of chloroplasts in eukaryotes such as plants and algae.

Modern molecular biology and genetics has enabled significant strides in research on the basic properties of biological rhythms. These advances will, in addition to relevance for understanding of cell and body biochemistry, health, and aging, provide insights into the molecular control of behavior.Cyanobacteria Structure Classification and Reproduction is discussed in this article.

The Cyanobacteria are the largest and most diverse group of photosynthetic bacteria. They were previously known as blue green algae.
