Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The psaC Gene of Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 encodes the FA/FB aprotein of photosystem I, a protein with a molecular weight of 8.9 kD containing two 4Fe-4S centers. The expression vector of psaC gene was constructed, and transformed into Saccharoromyces cerevisiae. Southern blotting confirmed that psaC gene had been successfully transformed and Tris-Tricine-PAGE revealed that psaC gene had been highly expressed after incubating the transformed strains in the inducing culture.
